Two of Austin’s biggest names in fine and casual dining will combine forces on June 30. Chef David Bull’s Congress will play host to Ramen Tatsu-ya chefs Takuya Matsumoto and Tatsu Aikawa.

The two chefs will prepare a five-course prix fixe dinner (wine pairings optional) at 7 p.m. on June 30. The menu will include salmon crudo with crispy ramen, braished pork belly, summer ramen with chicken thigh, and more.

“Chef Tako is a long time friend and a former Second Bar + Kitchen cook. We are thrilled to have him and his team back in our kitchen to create this unique dining experience for our guests,” Bull said.

This dinner costs $65 ($110 with pairings). Reservations can be made online or by calling 512-827-2760.
