It’s only been four days since we hosted our first chef’s table at Orofino and my wife and I can’t stop talking about it—such a good time! The best part for me was getting to welcome everyone to the banquet table and making so many new friends.
The staff and I turned the dining room upside-down and transformed the space from a restaurant into an Italian family-style banquet hall. We dressed the tables in white linen. Wine glasses, tumblers and flutes lined up along the length of the table like little crystal soldiers. Meanwhile, upstairs, the chefs and staff readied a procession of seven courses for our 20 guests.
I have to thank Carmelita and Patrick for sharing their stories and experiences from Sicily with everyone. Carmelita was indisputably the life of the party! I can’t wait for next month when we’ll explore the wine country and placid canals of the Veneto region!
Now, I have to warn you: the monthly chef’s tables are going to sell out fast! The cost will vary slightly from month to month depending on the cost of ingredients and there will always only ever be 20 seats available. Reservations must be made in advance at $100/seat for October and require a $50 deposit (refundable if cancellation is made before 10 October). The remaining $50 can be paid on the evening of the 16th. To reserve a seat or for more information, please call me at 540/373-2953 or email me at Danilo@OrofinoRestaurant.com.
I look forward to hosting the next one of these soon! I hope you’ll be able to join us!
