Erin Brindley And Terry Podgorski of Circus Contraption have left the Circus behind in order to give Seattle what it deserves: an infamous, notoriously antisocial, part-genius, part-sociopath, questionably-sentient culinary pioneer and conveyor of dangerously delicious food, Chef Nordo Lefesczki.
Nordo Lefesczki, Carnal food movement founder and Executive Chef of the roving experimental restaurant Café Nordo, makes his Seattle debut with “The Modern American Chicken”, a five course pre-fixe culinary experience. This October, Nordo’s team will create an intimate temporary restaurant in Fremont at the warehouse of Theo Chocolate, where for only seventeen evenings diners will experience this culinary rebellion. The menu bears witness to the life and death of a chicken, from the sweetly ignorant Country Egg on a Field of Wild Greens to the Beyond-it-all, Heaven or Hell Roasted Chicken, crispy-skinned and fiery with habanero cherries.
Your dining experience will be enhanced by musical and theatrical evocations of our Chicken’s time on earth, but please, do not refer to Café Nordo as Dinner Theater. Chef has been known to shut down entire restaurants at the mere whisper of such a term. Believe us—you will want to finish your meal.
Before inquiring after a vegetarian option, please consider two things: Our chicken is a vegetable, if she is what she eats, and Chef Nordo carries a large knife. Dietary restrictions? Certainly you have a shrink who will care. Nordo Lefesczki is a man of vision, not compromise. We promise you that the meal will rely almost exclusively on the bountiful Northwest fall, and Nordo is intensely passionate about local, sustainable, and seasonal food. Cheat on your tofu; our chicken will convert you.
With only one seating per night, and only seventeen nights, tickets will sell out quickly. Act fast to experience this completely original food event.
Tickets are available, in advance, from Brown Paper Tickets and include five courses and a wine flight.

We have sold our last Venezuela 91% bar and we have replaced this high cacao percentage delight with an even better chocolate – our new organic and fair trade 91% Costa Rica Origin Bar is a perfect balance of savory and nutty cacao flavors with just a hint of sweet fruit notes. Our founder has worked with Costa Rican cacao farmers for many years and is thrilled to offer a chocolate bar that delivers fabulous flavor while having a real positive impact in the origin country. Adios Venezuela, Viva la 91%!
Dark chocolate with Spicy Chile is a proven hit! Our rich 70% dark chocolate is beautifully balanced with the warmth of guajillo chile and cinnamon, the tanginess of pasilla chile and a subtle hint of citrus.
Available at our retail store and on our web site. If you don't see it at your favorite natural foods store, ask them to order it!!
