Keeping it fresh and fun with the guys at DISH DIVE!

DISH DIVE is a new restaurant located in KIRKWOOD owned and operated by Chef Travis Carroll & Jeff Myers. I have known Jeff over the last few years collaborating on some really cool dinners. Our first colab was Flavor Excursions #17 where the FE team featuring Chef Shane Devereux and executed a 6 course dinner in Jeff’s home. Next, while helping rebrand ‘The Music Room‘, Jeff invited me in to do a reoccurring event with my unofficial manager Craig Garret. This dinner turned into the successful ‘Serenade Supper Club‘ (next event is on August 1st). So for our first collaboration of the year I will be joining Chef Travis in his kitchen at DISH DIVE for a special Monday evening of delicious edibles.
