Cobaya 9/5/10 Dinner - Kats Out of the Bag

If you have received a confirmation of your seat request for the Cobaya Visiting Dignitary Dinner on Sunday September 5 ... you're in luck. Please go down to the bottom of this page and use the PayPal link to book your seats (please DO NOT use the PayPal link unless you have received an email CONFIRMING your request for seats).

In a break from our customary routine, I'm very happy to leak a little more info about our visiting chef. Katsuya Fukushima for the past fifteen years has worked closely with Chef José Andrés, including several years as the Head Chef of Café Atlantico in Washington DC. Katsuya helped open minibar, one of the more cutting edge restaurants in the country, as well as the more recently opened and acclaimed Bazaar by José Andrés in Los Angeles. He began work with Chef Andrés after spending a season at the legendary el Bulli in Roses, Spain working under the tutelage of Ferran Adria. So, yeah, we're kind of excited.

We have already received more requests than we have seats, but will be keeping a waitlist just in case seats become available. And if you're missing out on the dinner, you'll be able to catch Chef Fukushima on Iron Chef America on September 26.

As is customary, here is a brief refresher course on the whole Cobaya thing: there is no "menu". There are no choices. You'll be eating what the chef chooses to make for the night. If you have food related allergies, strict dietary requirements, religious restrictions; are salt sensitive, vegetarian, pescatarian, or vegan; don't like your meat cooked medium rare, or are pregnant: this meal is probably not for you. Do not expect white-glove service. Don't ask for your sauce on the side. Just come and enjoy.

Thank you as always for your support.
