The monthly dinner series moves from the country to Northside
As the weather starts to change, chef Ryan Santos and his unique, local farm-to-table dinner series Please is relocating from its summer home at Carriage House Farms to pallet23 in Northside. "We chose pallet23, in reality, because it has eletricity, water and equipment — very much unlike the farm," Santos says, "but it also allows us to offer a creative format for our dinners we haven't done before."Because pallet23 provides a flexible event space, Please will be altering the presentation of their previously rustic group dinners to take advantage of the space. "We're changing the format a bit this time around," Santos says."Gone is the communal table. Guests will sit along a kitchen counter and have front-row seats to the cooks as they prepare and serve them their meal in front of them."The dinners will now seat eight people, twice nighty — an early seating and a later seating — essential like making a restaurant reservation. The dinners will happens on Sundays and Mondays, twice a month. As another change, all dinners will now accommodate all guests. Where Please previously offered separate vegetarian, vegan and pescetarian dinners from their omnivore dinners, all will be offered at all seatings. And diners are invited to request the type of meal they'd prefer when making reservations. Dinner remains $59 per person, plus tax and gratuity. And all events will still be BYOB.
Upcoming dinners are on Sunday, Nov. 17 and Monday, Nov. 18, with early seatings starting at 5:45 p.m. and late seatings starting at 7:45 p.m. Seating requests are taken on a first requested, first seated basis. Your seats are not confirmed until payment is processed. To sign up to attend a Please dinner, head to pleasecincinnati.com and sign up.

On a recent Saturday, Chef Ryan Santos of Please, a mobile dining pop-up, uses pages from old copies of CityBeat
to light a fire. Santos moves quietly and
efficiently between trays of colorful but gnarled carrots, turning them
gently over the brick-lined grates as the afternoon warms.
