About the event

Join us for a very special "sneak peek" Harvest Dinner featuring a four-course meal inspired by Kristian's newest restaurant, The Dragon Room. Along with Head Chef Alex Strickland and Chef Gabrielle Baggette, he plans to take you into the world of The Dragon Room where the food inspirations come from China, through Korea and Japan, through Thailand and Taiwan to Laos and Cambodia, from the Philippines to Malaysia and Indonesia. 

The Dragon Room will open in the former Ristorante Divino's space in early 2023. In layman's terms, it will be an Asian cocktail and tapas bar...or rather an "izakaya", a term used in Japan to denote a casual place to eat, drink, and socialize.

COMMUNITY TABLES - If you just want to attend and do not mind sitting with others, purchase seats at one of our community tables! 

FOR LARGER PARTIES- We recommend talking with the people you would like to sit with and picking a table. Then, have your dinner mates purchase a ticket for the same table. PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE SEATS AT OTHER PEOPLES TABLES.  

Contact Vanessa at and we will rename your table after your group.
