When Streetfood owner Amelia Hatchard found out that restaurateurs Eric and Zarina Sakai, whom she used to work with at the Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole, were back in town, she jumped at the opportunity to invite them to guest star at her restaurant. The talented team, she said, is the perfect fit to curate special menus for the Around the World dinner series that has been so popular at Streetfood.
The culinary team recently moved back to the area after closing their successful Seattle restaurant, Restaurant Marron, where they won an award from Food and Wine. While both have held stints at famed restaurants such as Rubicon and The French Laundry, they wanted to move back to Jackson Hole and pursue a restaurant in this area. While their food in the past has been focused on modern American and French, often featuring tasting menus, they are considering an Italian-themed place when they find the perfect location in Jackson.
Until then, Hatchard said that the duo is a perfect complement to restart the Around the World dinner series at Streetfood, and the first dinner will be held Nov. 16. The dinner will focus on a taste of Tuscany, with four courses, several of which will include meat from a rare wild boar.
Eric said he is designing the menus based on global cuisine, highlighted in a clean and elegant way. Hatchard said the series is not-to-be-missed. “It is going to be like having a Four Seasons dinner at the Stagecoach.”
The dinners require a reservation for the 50 who can grab a seat, and the following dinner will focus on Hawaiian cuisine on Nov. 30. The costs is $45 per person.
