Ten of the best chefs in Sacramento are partnering with Plates Café and Catering, which will host, the launch of the Sacramento Dining Collective June 7 – an organization formed to showcase Sacramento’s cuisine.
Generally off the radar of national food publications, a band of chefs started the collective in March, and the June 7 event will be a three-course meal open to the public.
“We wanted to do something that was community-oriented, so we came up with the idea of working with Plates,” said Adam Pechal, owner of Tuli Bistro and Restaurant Thir13en.
Plates Café and Catering, located in Depot Park, is operated by the St. John’s Shelter Program for Women and Children and offers a unique way for women – many of whom are single mothers – to get back on their feet, Pechal said.
The three-course meal’s menu has yet to be set, but Pechal said he and nine other local chefs will collaborate on it.
Other chefs include David Hill of The Chef’s Table in Rocklin, Michael Thiemann of Ella Dining Room & Bar, Patrick Mulvaney of Mulvaney’s B&L and Billy Ngo of Kru.
“It’ll be ultra-local,” Pechal said. “That’s one of our big things. We are all about promoting what we have to offer.”
Tickets to the event cost $45 and can be purchased online. They will not be available at the door.
“Our goal is to kind of bring out food and dining scene to more of a national stage,” Pechal said. “We’re doing a lot of great things in this town, and we want people to know about it.”
Plates Café and Catering is located at 14 Business Park Way, Building 149 in Depot Park. The event will run from 5 - 8 p.m. June 7.
