The West has a certain lore. And we’re inviting you to experience our version of it with (OUT) WEST, exploring the adventurous flavors of, and built at the intersection of, our favorite Wests.
This limited series will offer sittings across a trio of iconic California locations, ending with Joshua Tree on September 30.
Tucked away from the hectic pace of everyday life, the unruly High Desert landscape creates a spirited setting for an unforgettable culinary experience that pairs the creativity of Chef Sebastien Pourrat, known for his contemporary stamp on the Basque dishes of western Spain and France, with the bold flavors of Westward Whiskey — conceived, aged in and inspired by the American Northwest.
On this one evening, seated among Joshua trees and cacti, our chef will prepare extraordinary tapas-style dishes outdoors, using locally sourced ingredients and spices from The Spice House. It turns out, California — with its sun, its spirit and its incredible settings — aligns with the feel of Pourrat’s hometown in western France.
Guests will also be introduced to or have the opportunity to get reacquainted with Westward Whiskey, whiskey built around process rather than tradition, served as artful cocktail pairings. This award-winning whiskey is brewed like a craft ale, distilled like a single malt and aged like a bourbon. And it will act as a bold sidekick to every basque bite.
Our friends at Will + Bear will be on hand to help you top off your experience with one (or more!) of their handcrafted, wool hats available for purchase — inspired by outdoor adventure and anchored by a commitment to earth-friendly materials. You’ll have the opportunity to select from their timeless designs and we’ll bring whimsical add-ons, like hat scarves, that allow you to customize your new hat. Catch a sneak peek at Will + Bear’s lovely headwear here.
Gather around our table for a delicious family-style meal, bring friends or make new ones, and we'll see you in Joshua Tree.
*The first 50 people to reserve a seat at (OUT) WEST will be entered for a chance to win a FINEX 10-inch cast iron grill and sear set ($430 value) — an ideal giveaway celebrating our collaboration with Westward Whiskey and Chef Sebastien Pourrat, who relishes the thrill of crafted and creative cooking.
