Here is a press-release I received today from the Wine Cask:
New “Chef’s Counter” at Wine Cask Offers Personalized Dinner with Chef Brandon Hughes
Santa Barbara, CA. March 2011 – The Wine Cask has long been known as one of Santa Barbara’s favorite restaurants, offering guests the ultimate dining experience. Carrying on tradition, Wine Cask introduces what promises to be the most interesting dinner table in town – their “Chef’s Counter”, a modern adaptation of the infamous “Chef’s Table” experience, offering an interactive evening with Chef Brandon Hughes and a very personalized taste of the Wine Cask.
Wine Cask’s Chef’s Counter not only offers guests coveted seats at their custom oversized bar situated within the main dining room, (yet in close proximity to the action in the kitchen), but one-on-one interaction throughout dinner with Chef Brandon Hughes. Chef’s Counter guests indulge in a three-course Farmer’s Market dinner he’s prepared exclusively for you, paired with fine local wines to accompany the ingredient-driven menu. Chef’s Counter seating offers guests a fun, interactive experience with the Chef, and the chance to be near the center of action in the kitchen, while enjoying the casual comfort of dining at the bar.
Book a seat at Wine Cask’s Chef’s Counter and get ready for a truly personalized dinner and an evening with the Chef you won’t soon forget. The three-course Chef’s Counter dinner and wine pairing is offered at $65/person, Monday – Thursday, advance reservations required. Please call (805) 966-9463 or visit http://www.winecask.com/ for more information.
Hungry for more? The Chef’s Counter is an in-house twist on the popular “Chef’s Market Strolls” offered at both Wine Cask and bouchon. If you’re looking for a hands-on culinary adventure, sign up for one of the strolls. Guests rendezvous with the Chefs from Wine Cask and bouchon at the Tuesday afternoon Santa Barbara Farmer’s Market downtown to select ingredients with Chef’s assistance, and return to the restaurant to enjoy a three-course Farmer’s Market dinner paired with local wines, exclusively designed by the chef for the special group to enjoy. Chef’s Market Stroll and three-course dinner with wine, $65/person. Limited to six guests each Tuesday. For reservations call Wine Cask (805) 966-9463 or bouchon (805) 730-1160.
