Santé Restaurant and Charcuterie and chef Chad White, who recently returned to Spokane from San Diego, are teaming up to host a welcome-home dinner.
The seven-course dinner costs $160 per person and starts with passed plates of hors d’oeuvres at 6 p.m. Dec. 20. After that, guests will sample three courses from White, three courses from Jeremy Hansen, chef and owner of Santé, and dessert by pastry chef Lynette Pflueger of Santé and Common Crumb.
White, a contestant on the current season of Bravo’s “Top Chef,” plans to open Native Post and Provisions in Spokane in the spring. He also owns restaurants in San Diego and Tijuana.
The cost for his collaborative homecoming dinner includes wine, tax and gratuity. Call Santé at (509) 315-4613 to make a reservation and pre-pay. An after-hours meet-and-greet party is also planned.
