With a Renzell Membership, you can access exclusive benefits and experiences in and around Renzell Restaurants. Below is a sampling of upcoming Renzell events.
Private Tasting at Osteria Langhe
Tuesday, May 2
Italy’s northern Piedmont region, Langhe’s other home, is the land of full-bodied Barolos, rich, creamy cheeses, and rare white truffles. You won’t find red sauce dishes here but you won’t miss them either. A hearty northern Italian lineup of pasta and wine are served in a spare, wide-open space. Join us for an evening of scrumptious Italian fare and dreamy Italian wines.
Empellón Cocina Tequila Tasting
Thursday, May 4
Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, Empellón’s beverage director, Noah Small, will take Renzell Members on a journey south of the border with a series of festive drinks, including three tequilas, 1 mezcal, a tequila cocktail, and a mezcal cocktail (if you can handle it!). Ranked #14 in cocktails, Empellón Cocina’s inventive flavors and concepts will be sure to amaze!
Private Tasting at Marjorie
Tuesday, May 30
Marjorie has moved across Seattle but it hasn't lost its feeling of home. Dedicated to owner Donna Moodie's mom, Marjorie, a woman known for her hospitality, the restaurant oozes with casual invitation. It also oozes with an eclectic ever-changing (except for the signature plantain appetizer!) menu that reaches beyond local fare to include Indian and Caribbean dishes. We'd tell you what's on the menu but it's likely to be different next month. Just like mom wanted.
Private Tasting at R2L
Tuesday, June 6
On the 37th floor of Two Liberty Place sits glamorous R2L, a restaurant with night club vibes and a stunning view of downtown. Sleek and understated, pops of zebra print remind guests there's still a bit of funkiness to this sky-high New American place. Join us for an evening of creative American cuisine with an emphasis on seafood (plus, the view of the sunset won’t be so bad either).
Private Tasting at Canary by Gorji
Tuesday, June 6
We know chef Gorji has a first name but we think he's earned the right not to use it. You know, like Madonna. There may be no harder working chef in Dallas. Gorji’s eclectic cooking truly defies categorization for unique meal combinations, like Colorado Lamb T-Bone and Texas Wild Boar sharing plates with campari tomato, tzatziki, and tabbouleh. It all adds up to a Dallas institution that keeps pace with the young guns.
Private Tasting at Liquid Art House
Monday, June 19
If ever there was proof that restaurants produce art on a plate, look no further than the battle for aesthetics at Liquid Art House. Between the rotating gallery on the walls, the elegantly plated and colorful food, and the distinct cocktails, every detail is an expression. Not surprisingly, everything—yes everything—is for sale. Join us for an evening of the art of food. Hopefully you will like what you see.
Private Tasting at Osteria Morini
Tuesday, June 20
Mr. White goes to Washington. Michael White, owner and chef of Altamarea Group, whose New York outposts boast some of the best pastas in New York, brings a version of his SoHo restaurant Osteria Morini to the Navy Yards. A bastion of Italian imports, Osteria Morini brings a revered quality to the DC scene. Join us for an evening of Emilia-Romagna cuisine and impeccable Italian wines.
Private Tasting at JCT Kitchen & Bar
Friday, June 23
The junction of Westside train tracks was already there long before the junction of JCT moved in. From the industrial space you can see the distant skyline and sip and dine and cross paths with some classic southern fare like deviled eggs and some truly original fried chicken. Join us for an evening of refined comfort food and craft cocktails.
Private Tasting at Frasca Food and Wine
Thursday, July 6
Blackbelly is Top Chef Hosea Rosenberg’s platform for magical meat (Burgers! Steak! Their very own butchery!) and incredible cocktails. The menu embraces “the food of the seasons,” sourcing the best ingredients from local artisans, suppliers, farmers, and ranchers. Join us for an evening indulging in Chef Hosea’s fresh and flavorful local creations.
