to savor tomorrow | fall 2011
An evening of high-flying cuisine and international intrigue aboard Pan AM Flight 892, bound for the 1962 Seattle's World's Fair
“Alongside zany, gastronomic fare, made from local sustainable ingredients, they tell compelling stories that illuminate the very foods they serve.”
Café Nordo follows the sold-out smash success of Sauced with To Savor Tomorrow, the second in Café Nordo’s Cocktail Series.
Fremont’s newest performance venue, West of Lenin, will be transformed into the in-flight lounge of Pan Am Flight 892 from Honolulu to Seattle. Flight 892 touches down in Seattle on the opening day of Century 21, the World’s Fair where fantasies of the future become reality with “The Car of Tomorrow”, “The Home of Tomorrow”, and “The Food of Tomorrow”.
Passengers will enjoy a flight of original cocktails perfectly paired with four small plates of modernist international cuisine inspired by the food of fifty years ago, all reimagined with the finest ingredients and the magic of molecular gastronomy by the incomparable Chef Nordo Lefeszcki. Thrill over the Bolshevik Blini with sauerkraut and beet caviar, swoon over the best Mai Tai in any time zone, and indulge with the Dwinkie, a liqueur-drenched homemade Twinkie that is sure to get you into the mile-high club.
Composer Annastasia Workman channels Henry Mancini to score the flight. And on board: Aimée Bruneau, Maximillian Davis, Ray Tagavilla, Mark Siano, and Opal Peachey portray Soviet, Chinese, British, and American agents capering amongst the gorgeous Pan Am staff in a story of espionage worthy of a Bond film.
