The Pretty Fork offers travelers in Seattle a secret dining experience, bookable five dates in 2019. Each experience showcases a multicourse meal from one of the region’s best restaurants.
Participants fly from Seattle in a small aircraft to an undisclosed island in the Pacific Northwest. Once there, guests enjoy a four- to nine-course meal prepared by a local celebrity chef. The experiences begin in May and are available through October; ticket costs include wine pairings, gratuities and tax.
“Disappointment is only derived through expectation,” said Joey Manley, co-founder and CEO, The Pretty Fork. “By removing expectation, you create an experience, and we have done just that. All destinations, restaurants and menus remain a secret until the precise moment you need to know.”
The first experience departs Seattle May 16.
