The protein then is the the theme of each of the servings and will contain some featured part of the Beast. Our evening was all about Fowl. This adventure is as much fun for the chefs as it is the feasters. Just think they work with a local purveyor to select any member of the fowl family to make each dish. So for Fowl it could be duck, egg, grouse, chicken, goose, I think you are getting the picture. You will not be familiar with any of the dishes they prepare because they are challenged to be creative and start from scrat5ch on every plate. Some things are stars and some things are not. The dinner is only for 16 people and is very reasonable at $85 per person not including drinks. Overall it is a good experience for a good value.
The meal is served family style except for the main entree. Be prepared there is plenty to eat but no doggie bags. Also the family style service ensures that you will meet some pretty cool people that are foodies just like you. We met Jack a retired San Diego Fireman and his wife Cathy, Bruce the Amtrak Coaster Conductor and Claudio a Play Producer.
Our Feast was held in it's own area near the wine shop. One of the cool things about Urban Kitchen Group Restaurants is that they have wine shop where you can buy wine at retail and for $9 have it corked and served, so you can get some pretty good wine deals.

We wrapped up with a Lemon Pie and a Duck Meringue, I love tart tastes and this pie hit the spot. It was a good way to cleanse the palate and wrap up the evening. I would encourage all readers to go to this event if you are in San Diego.
