Just about a year ago, I stumbled upon this nugget of information about Cafe Nordo in a Sunset magazine. You may remember me whining about why I hadn’t heard about it before. I promptly got myself on Chef Nordo’s email list to be notified when he planned on hosting another multi-course theater experience and that time has finally come. I am beyond excited to be going to the latest show on Thursday night. It’s called To Savor Tomorrow. Just look at what they’ve got in store!
This fall, CafÃ© Nordo follows the sold-out smash success of Sauced with To Savor Tomorrow, the second in CafÃ© Nordoâ€™s Cocktail Show Series. CafÃ© Nordo will transform Fremontâ€™s newest performance venue, West of Lenin, into the in-flight lounge of Pan Am Flight 892 from Honolulu to Seattle. Flight 892 touches down in Seattle on the opening day of Century 21, the Worldâ€™s Fair where fantasies of the future become reality with â€œThe Car of Tomorrowâ€, â€œThe Home of Tomorrowâ€, and â€œThe World of Tomorrowâ€.
Passengers will enjoy a flight of original cocktails perfectly paired with four small plates of modernist international cuisine inspired by the food of fifty years ago, all re-imagined with the finest ingredients and the magic of molecular gastronomy by the incomparable Chef Nordo Lefeszcki. Composer Annastasia Workman channels Henry Mancini to score the flight. And on board, Soviet, Chinese, British, and American agents hide amongst the gorgeous Pan Am staff in a story of international espionage worthy of a Bond film.
I’m not telling you all this to make you jealous. I wanted to make you privy to this info because according to the latest email I’ve gotten from said Chef, there are still tickets available! Plus, they’ve added two nights to the line up â€“ November 25th and 26th. Now, like I said, I haven’t actually gone to one of his dinner shows yet, but if it’s anything like this review or this one, it’s going to be a night to remember. And I don’t want you to be left out of all the intrigue…
