In today's EaterWire, mark those calendars with these upcoming NW events:
NORTHWEST: Chef Vitaly Paley, who's been subject of opening-a-seafood-restaurant-rumors for some time now, announced the unveiling of something kinda-sorta close (but not really). Beginning in April, the first Sunday of each month will be crowned Sustainable Seafood Sunday: Two seatings at Paley's Place will feature a meal designed around traditional bouillabaisse (the back room, open to walk-ins, will house a raw bar), with the chef onhand to wax poetic about the virtues of sustainable fish. The first Seafood Sunday is scheduled for April 3.
NORTHWEST INDUSTRIAL: Get learned: Steven Smith, the local tea-making legend of Stash and Tazo fame, will conduct a tea sourcing and blending class at NW's Steven Smith Teaworks tasting room, the home base of his newest artisanal line. In a joint program with the Portland Culinary Alliance, Smith will school guests in the origins of tea and guide them through the infusion of their own personal blend of black, white, or herbal tea. The tea afternoon is set for March 19 from 1-3pm, but registration closes tomorrow (Friday).
