FareStart Guest Chef Night
There won’t be a larger-than-life portrait of a white, fluffy Persian pu...cat, but chef Will Richey is certainly transporting Tallulah’s tradition of vegetable-forward food to FareStart this Thursday. Richey—about a month in as head chef at Tallulah’s—will take a turn in the organization’s kitchen. His three-course meal includes ling cod with couscous, rainbow chard, and grilled eggplant, plus a Theo chocolate mousse for dessert. Dinner, as usual, is $29.95 and begins at 5:30.
Taste of Iceland Dinner Series at The Carlile Room
The four-day long festival returns to Seattle, infiltrating the city with Icelandic music, art, and food. There will be an art installation at the Nordic Heritage Museum and Icelandic bands Fufanu and JFDR will perform with Seattle’s own Kinski at Neumo’s (for free!) on Saturday. Then there’s The Carlile Room. Icelandic chef Siggi Helga joins resident chef Desi Bonow to create a four-course dinner: Arctic char with char roe served with an oyster emulsion and crispy rye bread, cod with cauliflower, grilled filet of lamb with greens, and white chocolate brownie served with skyr ganache. Dinner is $75 and reservations to this Icelandic takeover is highly recommended.

Juicebox Cauldron Dinner
There won’t be three sister witches toiling over an actual bubbling cauldron. Sorry. This cauldron dinner though will be the first of many throughout fall and winter at Juicebox, each held on the evening of a full moon. In honor of the hunter’s moon, chef Heather Logan is preparing an entirely vegetarian feast: Local Roots Farm mixed greens with pecorino, fresh figs, and sherry vinaigrette, spiced chili with delicata squash, shiitake mushrooms, then chocolate bark with dried cherries and puffed millet for dessert. Oh, and plenty of wine. Tickets are $40 and dinner commences at sundown, or 6pm.
