While 2023 may still feel months away, in reality, it’s just a few weeks away! With that in mind, it’s never too early to start planning for the new year, especially when there are food-centric events involved. Lark, one of Seattle’s beloved restaurants, turns 20 in December of 2023, and to celebrate, they’re hosting a year-long dining series you don’t want to miss.

To honor the milestone anniversary, Lark is launching an alumni dinner series that will feature past chefs creating intimate and truly unique dinners. The series leads up to and will end with the main event on December 12th, 2023.

Chef and co-owner of Lark – John Sundstrom states, “We’ve had so much talent grace our kitchen over the last 19 years,” … “We thought it would be super fun to bring friends back for a night in the kitchen. You know, get the band back together.”
