Culinary Dream Team

Now That’s a Progressive Dinner

You have to eat, so you might as well be really, really happy doing it.

By Seattle Met Staff February 18, 2009

Six of Seattle’s top chefs – Maria Hines of Tilth, Joseba Jiménez de Jiménez of The Harvest Vine, Thierry Rautureau of Rover’s, Holly Smith of Café Juanita, John Sundstrom of Lark and Jason Wilson of Crush – are collaborating in the kitchen for a new series of six-course, deluxe dinners that’ll happen monthly, all year long.

Here’s how it works: You go to the scheduled restaurant. The host chef prepares hors d’oeuvres and dessert, and each of the other chefs is responsible for one of the other courses. The six-course meals are $90 per person (tax, tip, and wine are all extra), and reservations can be made by calling each restaurant individually.

Three of the chefs (Smith, Sundstrom, and Ratureau) have been crowned “Best Chef in the Northwest” by the James Beard Foundation, and the rest have been nominated – so it’s basically a chance to have a meal made by a culinary dream team. Schedule below.

Dinner 1: Wednesday, Feb. 25, at Rover’s
Dinner 2: Monday, Mar. 16, at Tilth
Dinner 3: Tuesday, April 14, at Harvest Vine
Dinner 4: Monday, May 18, at Lark
Dinner 5: Monday, Sept. 21, at Café Juanita
Dinner 6: Monday, Oct. 19, at Crush
Dinner 7: Nov. date and location yet to be released
