Last month’s dinner dining get together was a success at the Hi Spot Cafe for one last evening out on the patio before the cold weather blew in, and this month the Madrona Dining & Sipping Society has a prix fixe dinner planned at Marche in Pike Place Market! Next week on Wednesday October 23rd diners will head to the Inn in the Market at 6:30pm where Marche’s chef and owner, and Madrona resident Daisley Gordon will prepare a menu to remember for 40 lucky guests. He has boasted of a lovely special family style feast for diners, which will be carefully paired with wine for three courses.

There is only room for 40 at the roundtable, so please rsvp if you’d like to join. To learn more about the event, menu, or reserve your spot be sure you’re on the MDSS email list. If you’re not already on the email list, contact, an evite for the event went out earlier this month, if you did not receive it, be sure to contact Audrey today. Bon Appetit!
