A chef's dinner is an opportunity for a kitchen's top toque to put their skills to the test in creating a truly memorable meal. On this night, executive chef Patrik Landberg's simple yet refined European cuisine has the spotlight. His classic dishes get an innovative twist when cooked in a high-heat Bincho (Japanese-style) charcoal kiln, resulting in simultaneously crisp and tender meats and veggies. Diners, of this six-course tasting menu, can look forward to an abundant cheese board to start—including house-made ricotta and poblano crostini— followed by a butter-poached crab salad with a charred green onion vinaigrette and a chorizo-stuffed chicken ballotine. Wine pairings optional. Tue 6:30 p.m.
