More Details Emerge for Trent Pierce's Seafood Concept

According to an email blast, Wafu chef Trent Pierce is scouting locations in the Pearl District for his previously announced return to seafood. Pierce, whose short-lived but celebrated seafood restaurant Fin shuttered in February 2011, writes that the new downtown concept will mark a return to modern, refined techniques. "I'm passionate about Wafu because we're able to do things there that are accessible and at a price point that speaks to a broader audience," Pierce writes. "Wafu is very fun and in-your-face, this new concept is definitely a more refined experience."

Pierce has also announced a monthly dinner series that will offer previews of the seafood restaurant menu — the first, scheduled for April 12 at Wafu, will feature a "multi-coursed seafood menu" with wine pairings by St. Jack GM/sommelier Joel Gunderson. Pierce's as-yet-unnamed restaurant is vaguely set to open sometime "later this year."
