A number of you guys probably remember Chef Dave Santos who used to cook phenomenal food at Hotel Griffou (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/796580). Just thought that I'd share the news that he'll be cooking and hosting 4 private dinner events in November. I don't think I'll be able to go (need to save up for Per Se!), but I figure that some people here might be interested and I'd love to see any reports on the dinners.
The dinner series is called "Um Segredo" and will take place on Nov 4, 5, 10, and 11. Grubstreet has the details posted here: http://newyork.grubstreet.com/2011/10...
