One Night Only: Guest Chef 5 Course Dinner at Sotto Sopra Restaurant

Editor’s Note: UPDATE The five-course dinner’s date originally scheduled March 16 has been changed to March 22.

 

Baltimore’s award-winning Sotto Sopra Restaurant located in the heart of the Mt. Vernon cultural district has been very active with special events, especially their guest chef series. Mark your calendars for a most engaging five course Asian inspired dinner from Chef Tayfun Abuska on March 22.

Chef Tayfun Abuska, a Turkish native who started working at an early age at the Izmir Palmiye Hotel, transitioned to the 5-Star Ankara Hilton Hotel and continued to work for the Swiss Hotels.

His culinary path has taken him through the French Embassy to the United States in 2008, where he worked for the Four Seasons Hotels in Wyoming, California and here in Baltimore. A stint at Michael Mina’s Pabu Japanese Restaurant working with Chef Jonah Kim has inspired his penchant for Asian dishes which is apparent in his Guest Chef Dinner’s menu.

Recently, Chef Abuska has been working in Washington, DC as the sous chef at MalMaison, Ottoman Taverna and currently with Chef Jonathan Dearden at Kimpton Hotel – Radiator Restaurant.
