This month’s Dinner with Chefs at Agustin Kitchen is a family affair. Chef Ryan Clark’s special guest is AK’s own Sous Chef Brandon Dillon.

Chef Dillon has spent years working in Tucson’s top restaurants, including McMahon’s Prime Steak House, Fuego, Starr Pass and Lodge on the Desert.

On October 13, he will prepare eight courses featuring his favorite dishes from each venue, paired with four different wines. The menu ranges from classic American steakhouse to Greek to Italian, and finally lands back on Agustin Kitchen’s New American cuisine.

Cost per person is $65.
