James Beard Award-Winning Chef Jason Wilson To Create The Menu For LOVE, CHAOS, AND DINNER

Enjoying A Limited Engagement Run at King County’s Marymoor Park – October 19, 2017-April 29, 2018

SEATTLE, Wash. (September 5, 2017) — With great excitement, Teatro ZinZanni today announced its partnership with local restaurateur and James Beard Award-winning Chef Jason Wilson for its highly-anticipated limited engagement of Love, Chaos, and Dinner opening next month at King County’s Marymoor Park. Guests of the famous spiegeltent relish in extravagant velvet walls and crystal chandeliers all while being swept away by performances from the world’s finest circus and entertainment talents. Chef Jason adds the final essential ingredient – his award-winning regional American cuisine. The menu, exclusively created and prepared for Teatro ZinZanni, will be designed with the iconic institution’s multi-course service style in mind while infusing his signature style on the unique dining experience. The complete menu will be announced in the coming weeks.

Chef Jason has been making headlines of late for the opening of two new establishments in Bellevue, Wash. – The Lakehouse, a chef’s take on a Northwest Farmhouse offering vibrant, farm-inspired craft cooking, and Civility and Unrest, a throwback speakeasy-inspired whiskey bar and cocktail lounge. His first restaurant, Crush, propelled him into the national spotlight and earned him culinary renown and numerous awards, including Food & Wine’s Best New Chef and the James Beard Award for Best Chef Northwest. His second Seattle restaurant, Miller’s Guild, brought a new level of wood-fired craft cooking to Seattle. Jason’s entrepreneurial nature and innovative approach has helped him expand his talents beyond his restaurants into other diverse projects. These qualities, along with the expansion to the Eastside, drew the attention of Teatro ZinZanni.

“Ever since I first experienced Jason’s work at Crush, it has been a secret dream of mine to bring him into the zaniness that is ZinZanni,” Markus Kunz, Teatro ZinZanni Executive Director comments. The performance talents you see under the spiegeltent are truly at the top of their craft – you cannot take your eyes off of them when they take center ring. This is what it is like to experience Jason’s work – he is an innovator, a creative artist of food whose attention to details like locally sourced foods and presentation only enhance the natural skill he has to perfectly curate a menu and prepare a dish. We could not be more excited to share his work with our audiences starting this fall!”

“The partnership with Teatro Zinzanni is a dynamic, inspiring, and fun opportunity that is a natural fit for both of us. We share a genuine love of craft and art, from the talented and creative cast and players to the interpretation and innovation of the food,” said Wilson. “The menu will stick to the root of how I approach my cooking – local, seasonal, craft-cooking. It will work symbiotically with the playfulness of the show, allowing the guest to experience the show and even lose themselves in the show, while enjoying a delicious, authentic dinner, with a few surprises along the way.”
