Chef's Seasonal Dinner Series

Join us for our Chef's Seasonal
Dinner at Spruce!

November 2, 2017 | 6:30 pm - 8:30pm

Each course in this dinner series reflects the flavors of the season and features ingredients sourced from the Rocky Mountain Region.

Chef Payne will create a menu filled with delicious dishes that you will want to recreate for your family over the holidays.  You will not only enjoy a wonderful dinner (with wine pairings if you wish), but will also be able to take the recipes home!  

Chef John Payne, who has worked for several James Beard award-winning restaurants in the Pacific Northwest and San Francisco, will join the dinners at each course to explain the origins and intent of each dish.  For $15, guests can add a flight of 5 wines, served in 3 oz pours, each paired with a dinner course. Guests also have the option to purchase wine by the glass or any cocktail of their choosing.
