Next Wednesday from 6 to 10 p.m., Dale Talde will meet up with the future All’Onda chef at Talde’s restaurant Thistle Hill Tavern for a friendly showdown. For each of the four courses, guests will choose between Chris Jaeckle’s preparation (pork chop with Parmesan fonduta and potatoes, for example) or Talde’s (think spicy Singapore-style lobster served on crispy noodles). The chefs bonded at Morimoto, where they were cooks; their “East-meets-West” dinner is $60, tax and tip excluded. Call 347-599-1262 for reservations. [Earlier, Related]
