Khong River House Hosts Top Chef's Dale Talde For Chef's Table

Khong River House's Chef Bee is sharing kitchen duty this Thursday, May 30, when Top Chef alum Dale Talde flies in from Brooklyn for this month's Upstairs at Khong Chef's Table.

The family-style dinner starts at 8 p.m. and features both chefs serving up a host of their favorite dishes, while mingling with diners. The meal is priced at $75 per person, and includes a welcome drink. Reservations are strongly suggested by calling 305-763-8147.

We spoke with chef Talde about what he's planning to serve, and what happens behind the scenes at Top Chef.

New Times: You're the first out-of-towner to do the chef dinner series at Khong. Why did you decide to be the first one?

Dale Talde: I've met some of the 50 Eggs partners. They called me and that's how it came about. I love Miami. I think it's so ready for Southeast Asian food. I think there's an audience for that right now.

How will the dinner work?

We're doing a collaborative menu. I just dislocated my shoulder so I'm bringing my sous chef with me to help me along.

What happened to your shoulder? Kitchen-related?

I'm a moron. I wrecked it on my bike.
