Insanis, the 20 course tasting menu will be open to the public to book on 8/5/18.   This 20 course tasting menu will be in a different location starting on Saturday's in September and going through November.  There is no concept for this, no set menu, and it will be a different style of service every time.  Once you book you will receive a questionnaire that will help me dial the experience even further for you.  Stay the night?

Here is where we are going: 

I'm taking the Silva menu on the road to different areas in Washington.  The menu will depend on the location.   These will be in larger homes that you can choose to stay at for the nights of the dinner.  Yes, I said nights.  

Here's how it works -

Friday arrival:  small bites, drinks, welcoming time
Saturday morning: brunch
Saturday afternoon: light snacks
Saturday evening: nice long tasting menu
Saturday night cap:  snacks and drinks
Sunday morning:  breakfast and go home! 

These will be priced as an all-inclusive thing.  

If you want to travel to one of these places to just have the Saturday night dinner, then that's cool too, there is a separate price for just the Saturday night dinner. 

The trip itself is designed to have a chill feel so sit back, relax, and let us take care of you.  Each place we will stay at will have 4 rooms that will be included in this price. I'm working on prices soon for this.  

I am re-working the dates for these as demand for these has increased.  

- Bellingham (TBD)
- Long Beach (TBD)  
- Olympia (February 2019)
- Spokane (March 2019)
- Walla Walla (March 2019
- Orcas Island (TBD)

These will go live on 8/15/18 and will be sold directly on my site on when they launch.  Cool!

DIS (click)

Dis is a new incubator by chefs Dave Valencia, Bri Valencia, and Kieran McMeekan.  More from chef Dave about this concept -

The concept is called DIS. It’s the word push in Latin. The cuisine is pnw meets Mexico. I am Mexican American from Tucson, AZ. I moved  to Seattle a little over a year ago in hopes to push myself food wise. I am currently the chef at Brimmer and Heeltap and the food is a hit. I overhauled the menu taking it from far east to far south. It has been a hit with the returning customers. I want to take it further and more adventurous. That’s where addo comes in.
