I heard The Crooked Knife at 14th has a pretty good chef. Or at least used to.

Son is there, I just visited Crooked Knife on Wednesday last week. Didn't have to look at the menu, I just asked the chef to send over whatever he wanted to make. :)

Great atmosphere and great food. That would be a great place to visit again.

I'd love to join you, but could only make it Sunday for dinner. If that's what you decide, please let me know. Otherwise, have fun.

You guys excel at what you do, and there is no better reason to visit your places periodically.

Andrew, yeah, keep an eye on this thread for details. Sunday at Crooked Knife is easier to get a table, according to Son.

I am very found of your "simple" stuff. So no worries, you will most certainly exceed people's expectations. And you have plenty of time to prepare. :D

Wow, what a night. Three plus hours of good food, good company and looking at and talking about knives and other things. There were almost as many knives on the table last night as there were at the ECG the other week. I can only imagine what some of the patrons were thinking with that arsenal lying there.

A special thanks to Son, our most gracious host. You outdid yourself. Thank you my friend.

It would really be great if some other chefs in the area would consider hosting nights like this. I tried to start just such gatherings many months ago with a post, but it didn't get off the ground. Maybe this time?

Wow, 3 hours being entertained by Son? That makes for a truly memorable evening! As far as getting other KKF cooks to host, in my experience the best thing is for you to pick a couple, reach out to them, and do the bulk of the legwork yourself. These guys are usually too busy to worry about drumming up people, etc., but always seem to excel at handling whatever size group you can organize, often following a 'chef's choice' type of menu.

Great time the dinner table atmosphere made for a whirlwind of in going conversations, great stuff. Son was great, Marko him and I went and had some late night stale donuts after...nothing like a downtown donut shop at 1am. Hope to see you guys soon.
Rick at last ones sneaking out by ourselves...although we did all close the place.

It was awesome indeed, Son was a great host and the new (only 3 weeks on the job she said), very sweet waitress handled a bunch of knife nuts with great aplomb.Food was awesome, ribs to die for. Got to meet a bunch of people and pick up my new extra long nakari that Marko made for me - I'll post pictures of that beauty when I get home
