Bid Adieau to Rover's - Last Hour of 25 Years

It is sad to hear that Rover's will be closing in late June after a 25 year run.

Rover is the best french restaurant in Seattle IMO.

(Most recent honors: A rare 29/30 score in the new Zagat ratings, where it was judged Seattle's #1 restaurant for food and for service.)

We're doing one last hurrah at Rover's before Chef Thierry closes shop to move on to his next big project. Let's bid adieu to this legendary Seattle culinary icon in style, shall we?

Please sign up only if you are interested in ordering one of the tasting menus. We plan to stay here for a good amount of time.

Let's enjoy the Final hours of an institution.

This will be an emotional night for guests as well as staff !!

**Yes, you will be paying an expensive meal but you are paying for Excellence who is a master at his craft.  You also might get to meet him after your dinner. Thierry Rautureau is a hard man not to like with his signature hats why he is called chef in the hat.


RSVP ETTIQUETTE: Serious folks only, please.

Don't incur my wrath by flaking on this one. Trust me.

My credit card is on the line for this any no shows will be charged.

***RSVP ETIQUETTE: Since we have limited space I ask that you (and your guest) be considerate of others and commit to your RSVP.

****In the past there have been issues with last minute cancellations . Your last minute cancellation deprives another of an opportunity to dine so we are not very forgiving with regard to no-shows. If you sign-up and cancel the day of the event, you will be excluded from my future events.**

    Loved it.... and we literally closed Rovers at 1:30 a.m. (pace was slow) Chef Theirry even gave each of us a signed menu as a memento to remember this esteemed establishment... It will be missed... Great food and enjoyed the company of members lucky enough to make this grande finale.

    I've never been to a meet-up yet so I was wondering how to find you guys when I get there! Thanks

      I'd just ask for the table reserved for the foodie group. Usually it's pretty easy to find folks though.
