Ryan Santos and his team at Please — his novel farm-to-table style pop-up dining experience, which has previously found homes in storefronts like OTR's streetpops and at Carriage House Farm in North Bend — are making dinner a regular date at the new Cheapside Cafe downtown.
Friday and Saturday nights, Please will be taking over the cafe (located at 326 E. Eighth St.) offering communal-seating dinner service for 12 people at 6 and 8:30 p.m. The dinners will remain five-courses for $59 (per person plus tax and gratuity), with accommodations made for allergies and dietary restrictions if noted in your advance reservation. Dinners are BYOB with coffee service provided from Cheapside for a separate purchase.
New to these dinners will be walk-in service. Up to four walk-in diners will be accepted at each dinner, for those who weren't able to reserve in advance. Walk-ins will be accepted 15 minutes prior to each service on a first-come, first-serve basis. Their current available seatings are:
- 6 p.m. Friday, July 25 (12 guests, 4 walk-ins after 5:45 p.m.)
- 8:30 p.m. Friday, July 25 (12 guests, 4 walk-ins after 8:15 p.m.)
- 6 p.m. Saturday, July 26 (12 guests, 4 walk-ins after 5:45 p.m.)
- 8:30 p.m. Saturday, July 26 (12 guests, 4 walk-ins after 8:15 p.m.)
