Weave A Thousand Flavors Supper Club
(where some days we brunch...)
Let's break bread!
Some of the most memorable moments during our Journeys around the world are the dinners we share at the table together, as we pass dishes around and enjoy a Chef's signature creations. Whether it is at a long table set in a cobblestone courtyard under the stars or in some of the most renowned restaurants in the world, it's a place where the evening comes alive with great food, great wine & even better company.
As foodies we can't be snobs; we go where the great meal takes us!
I'm incredibly grateful to share that at the suggestion of some of my fellow travelers, I'm bringing these dinners closer to home - in Washington D.C. and the Capital region. Our supper club will feature a restaurant or venue carefully chosen for a Chef's unique style or perspective and will feature the Chef's signature creations. Here's an opportunity to explore new cuisines, unique ingredients and stretch our flavor palettes at some of the hottest and up-and-coming venues in the city.
Let's gather together for an evening of fine food, great wine, easy laughter and shared perspectives as we sip & sup!
We'll slowly dine on locally inspired menus crafted to match the season, while enjoying wines curated for the meal. As the evening extends, we'll savor the beautiful flavors and conversation between new found friends. After we finish over coffee and dessert, I hope that you'll walk away inspired by the joy of a refreshing new dining experience.
Supper club dinners will be hosted 4-6 times each year, between the months of April-November.
I hope you'll join our table.
Here's what past guests had to say.....
"This is a great way to have dinner and converse with fellow foodies and experience great restaurants in the DC metro area."
"Maydan D.C - Good food, great wine, and wonderful people to spend a meal with is something magical. You just can’t ask for anything more. Thank you for sharing and connecting with me as we toast and remember Anthony Bourdain".
"Devaki arranged a superb event, choosing 10 dishes that highlighted the best flavors of the special mix of Peruvian, Chinese and Japanese cuisines that make China Chicano such a special restaurant. The food and companions made this event a delightful way to spend 2 hours on a Sunday afternoon"
"Maydan was spectacular. Tucked away off Florida Ave, it is a hidden gem. The many courses of sumptuous food were so flavorful and perfectly prepared...from the assortment of appetizers to the lamb that was cooked for 72 hours. I particularly loved the squid! The company was fabulous and I met several knew friends I hope to stay in touch with. All in All, worth every penny! Can’t wait to do it again!"
"The food was exotic and amazing! The company was equally wonderful. My husband loves tasting menus and this one was built just for us! Ceviche was my favorite thing"

About Chefs & Owners
Seng Luangrath & Bobby Pradachith
Chef Seng was born in Laos and fled the country during the Vietnam War. During her stay at a Thailand refugee camp of Nakhon Phanom, she learned how to cook from her camp neighbors and elders. In 2009, at the age of 40 she decided to go after her greatest passion, cooking. She took over Padaek (previously Bangkok Golden) in 2010 and in 2014, she opened Thip Khao DC.
Chef Bobby grew up in Northern Virginia in a Lao household. The opportunity to study in culinary school and to work under his chef-mother and the tutelages of other Chefs in several restaurants in DC and New York helped guide him, to continue to operate his family’s two restaurants. His sole ambitions are to preserve the integrity of the culture through food and to encourage the Lao-American communities to follow the journey of Lao story telling. He finds old historical contents, recipes, and art to be the inspirations within the menu.
Upon arrival, be seated at our special Sunday Brunch Table. As we get comfortable and await the arrival of all our guests, get comfortable, relax and soak in the sights and sounds of this dynamic restaurant. Share conversations with found friends, relish the flavors of an incredibly inspiring and diverse menu. As we wind down the brunch over tea or coffee and dessert, I hope that you'll walk away inspired to join us on our next dining adventure and perhaps even join us on our next culinary vacation to Puglia in 2019!
