On the heels of his veteran “Top Chef” cast announcement today, Chef John Tesar announces a new project that will see the celebrated chef revive some of his most popular Spoon seafood dishes for a limited number of diners at secret locations throughout Dallas. Seating will be limited to 16 guests per night, with location details revealed only one day before the event.
These coveted dining experiences will take place on Oct. 28, Nov. 9, Nov. 14 and culminate with a special John Tesar birthday dinner on Thursday, Nov. 17. The cost is $135 per person (not including tax and gratuity). The dinners will be ‘byob,’ with the option of a $200-per person with a wine pairing.
“Seafood has always been one of my culinary passions, and I’m truly excited to offer these events as an opportunity to treat guests to some of their favorite seafood dishes from Spoon,” says Tesar.
Spoon Bar & Kitchen, best known for offering high-quality, responsibly sourced seafood, closed its doors in 2014. Spoon received recognition in Condé Nast Traveler’s “Best New Restaurants in the World,” Bon Appetit Magazine’s “The Best New Restaurants of America in 2013” and Esquire magazine’s “The Best New Restaurants of 2013.”
Seating is limited with only 16 seats per dinner. Tickets go on sale at 2 p.m. today.
