What: First Thursday Chef’s Dinner
Where: The Tin Table, 915 East Pine Street
Why you should go: Because galleries aren’t the only ones turning it up on First Thursday. Consider chef Travis Chase’s assemblage for this week’s three-course feast, inspired by Argentine cuisine: lobster porcini empanadas with chilled avocado honey soup and candied cilantro; spicy grilled octopus with sweet corn, cherry tomatoes, and black beans; and skirt steak (braised, grilled, and smoked—impressive) with celery root fennel puree and chimichurri.
Cost: $40 per person; wine pairing and other drinks cost extra
Reservations: Highly recommended, call 206-320-8458
