Chefs Scott Ostrander and Paul DiPierro are bringing their high-end CHEF’S COUNTER dinners back at their East Sac fast-casual restaurant, Origami Asian Grill. The pair have a deep background in fine dining—Ostrander at Chicago’s Alinea, DiPierro at Napa’s Meadowood—and began the tasting menu dinners in 2018 as a creative break from their normal sandwich-and-rice-bowl routine. After a two-year pause for the pandemic, the dinners are resuming on Friday nights. Expect up to 12 courses featuring seafood and Wagyu beef, along with modern techniques. The cost is $155 per diner; for tickets, go to exploretock.com/origamiasiangrill.
