**SORRY FRIENDS, THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT**
Along my journey
through this transitory world,
new year's housecleaning
Come, sit, and begin the new year with intention, reverence and joy. On January 1, 2018, Secret Language and Tournant collaborate to bring you a very special New Year’s Day brunch, inspired by the clean flavors and simple, graceful beauty of a traditional Japanese breakfast, with small touches that ground us in the Pacific Northwest.
Expect an array of vegetable dishes, pristine seafood, delightful details, and the sense of renewal and total-mind-body-heart happiness that only comes from a deeply nourishing breakfast enjoyed in good company. We wish to invoke conviviality, community and harmony as we set out on this fresh start, and hope you’ll join us.
The meal will showcase beautiful ceramics by Careen Stoll and Carter + Rose, and can be enhanced further with ceremonial matcha from Mizuba, nigori sake, ginger mimosas and other lovely sips and flourishes. See below for menu and reservations.
