Sontes in Rochester to Hold 20 Course Feast |
Title (Max 100 Characters)
2013 (Rochester, MN). Söntés Restaurant’s head chef Bryce Lamb has been dreaming of a twenty-course feast for months. On January 25, 2013 at 6pm, that dream will come true for Chef Lamb and sixteen guests at the Omakase Dinner.
Twenty-course meals are not served very often, and as such are uniquely memorable events. “I’ve never heard of a twenty-course dinner being served in Rochester, or even in the Twin Cities,” says Söntés owner Tessa Leung. “A lot of creativity and coordination goes into the meal, and we’re excited that Chef Bryce and his team are able to bring that together for our guests.”
“Omakase” is a Japanese word that means “I’ll leave it to you,” and when used in a restaurant setting, it means that the diner trusts the chef to choose the meal. In the case of Söntés’ Omakase Dinner, Chef Bryce and his team will be preparing a four- to five-hour feast. The broad range of dishes, from duck, to caviar, to mango soup, will balance locally sourced ingredients with worldly flavors. Each dish will lead elegantly into the next, and diners will experience what can best be described as a culinary symphony.
Seating for the Omakase Dinner is limited to sixteen guests, so early reservations are recommended. Tickets are $150 per person, not including tax and gratuity. The complete menu for the evening can be found at: http://sontes.wordpress.com/2013/01/09/omakase-chefs-choice/
