After work yesterday, Alan and I had dinner in Seattle. But we were back in our downtown Knoxville home by 9 p.m.
Actually, we only went to Bearden. We were at Holly’s in Homberg Place where chef Holly Hambright is offering “a taste bud tour of the world in nine menus.” Last night happened to be “dinner in Seattle.” It was the second of these creative themed repasts. We missed the first, Munich, Germany. Still to come: Mendoza, Argentina; Marseille, France; Kyoto, Japan; Barcelona, Spain; Bologna, Italy; Montreal, Quebec; and (ha!) Knoxville, Tennessee.
Each dinner is five courses (six, if you count the amuse-bouche) and you can bring your own wine. Cost is $120 per person. Think that’s a little pricey? Well, you can do what I saw a woman at the next table doing. She brought a cooler filled with plastic ziplock containers. She put at least half of each course in a container to take home. So, if you do that, you can have two $60 meals. And, believe me, the course sizes are plenty large enough to carry out this plan. (read more)
