FIRST ON-LINE NETWORKING PLATFORM FOR RESTAURANTS & BARS DIRECTLY CONNECTS INDUSTRY TO PRODUCERS
Tate’s List, the first go-to online network for the restaurant and bar industry in the Puget Sound area, successfully launched its fourth “Industry Only” tasting event on Monday, October 20th.
More than 150 representatives from 50 different restaurants and bars, came out to the Pike Place Market Atrium event space to sample, network and discover new products for their establishments. The gathering included 26 producers pouring wines, beers, ciders and spirits. Also in attendance were the Puget Sound Food Hub, Farmstr, and Starlight Desserts.
Guests nibbled on bites prepared by Chef Nick Parker from Capitol Hill’s Manhattan restaurant. Tastes included seared sirloin, roasted carrot, and kale skewers as well as a fresh salad of apples, pears, and arugula with shrimp/kimchi aioli, supplied by Farmstr’s partners.
“Amazing turnout! It confirms the need for our service. We continue to build a network that will help connect such a fragmented industry. This is just the beginning of more great things to come.” –Tate Rogers, CEO and Founder of Tate’s List
