I’m not part of Slow Food, though I’m a fan of the group and have several friends that are involved. I keep telling myself I need to join because I often hear of the really great events after the fact (Momocho had one last month that was kid-friendly!). But not this time. My friend Heidi Robb, who is helping coordinate this dinner, shared with me the details of this month’s event at Umami, the super tiny Asian restaurant in Chagrin Falls (look for a full review shortly – I’ve been three times now and each time am more impressed).
Seats are limited (did I mention this place is small?) so if interested, call soon. The cost is $75 per person, but that includes tax and gratuity. Here are the details:
Sustainable Seafood and Wine Dinner / Umami Asian Kitchen / June 22, 6:30p.m. to 9 p.m.
