This summer, The Suttle Lodge will gather guests at a table surrounded by water for four one-of-a-kind meals in Central Oregon’s Deschutes National Forest. These intimate, communal “Dock Dinners” will take place as the sun sets over Suttle Lake. The lineup of chefs cooking at the lodge this summer include Maya Lovelace of Mae, one of the most coveted reservations in Portland, Sam Smith of Tusk, Portland’s vegetable-focused hotspot, James Beard-nominated chef Cathy Whims and Rob Roy of Portland’s beloved Italian restaurant Nostrana, and chef Ricardo Valdez of The London Plane in Seattle. Each restaurant will be paired with a winery from the Willamette Valley, including Cameron, Montinore Estate, St. Reginald Parish and Suzor. Details, pricing and direct ticket links for each dinner are below. Overnight lodging is available to ticketed dinner guests by calling the lodge directly at (541) 638-7001.
Sunday, July 8th will feature Chef Maya Lovelace who invokes the warmth and Southern Appalachian cooking of her grandmother in each meal she shares with guests at her Portland supper club (and soon-to-open restaurant), Mae. The award-winning chef and veteran of nationally renowned restaurants such as Husk and Beast quickly won Portland diners over with her fried chicken and North Carolina-style “meat-and-three” meals celebrating the bounty of the Pacific Northwest.
On this summer night at the lake, she’ll cook up a playful summer menu served alongside the wines of St. Reginald’s Parish. Fellow Southern transplant (New Orleans), winemaker Andy Young will pour his lively and approachable lineup of Oregon wines with the meal, and the evening will kick off with a pre-dinner cocktail featuring Steven Smith Tea.
Family-style dinner begins at 5:30pm.
$125 per person includes dinner, wine tasting and gratuity.
