Yes, lots of places are doing it, and yes it's a little tough to catch— do you know your flukes from your mackerels? Your albacore from your steelhead? If you really wish to crack this code, here's probably the best (and best deal) around to do it.
Erik Anderson is of course the much-heralded former chef of the much-heralded seafood restaurant Sea Change. The little stage- like cooking proboscis in the center of the room became the inspiration for Anderson's former restaurant Catbird Seat out in Nashville (the restaurant is still open, albeit without Anderson). CS was also much-heralded and only a dozen seats, as the Sea Change stage once was.
Anderson is at it again, this time at Scena Tavern, and he's going to be doing what he does best in a 8-seat (8 seats! So get yours fast) crudo performance of sorts, this weekend. To sweeten the deal significantly, Nick Kosevich of Bittercube is going to be wielding the booze pairings, and the whole setup is just a hundred bucks (consider that a single crudo bar offering goes for $11-18 at Scena and you will see that this is quite a deal).
Two seatings nightly, this Friday and Saturday, 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. If things go well, it might be a regular thing, and then again it might not, so if you wanna go, just go. Email [email protected] to reserve a spot.
