The Hotel Pattee in Perry, Iowa has made the news a lot since re-opening last November. The restaurant has received rave reviews, and the hotel itself has hosted all sorts of new events. Hotel Pattee owner Jay Hartz and Executive Chef Chris Caes made another big announcement recently. The hotel will kick off a dinner and concert series starting in June called the Lit by the Sun Signature Series. The series is designed to pair the artistry of cuisine and song in a distraction-free environment (no phones or talking will be allowed during the concerts). Chef Caes will prepare a light 3-course meal for each event, and talented musicians from around the country will be enlisted to perform. Each event will be $35, and overnight packages at the hotel are also available. Tickets and reservations may be taken care of through the Hotel Pattee website. If you have food allergies, make sure that you contact the Hotel Pattee in advance to make adjustments to your plate for the dinner.
Here is a look at the preliminary schedule for the Lit by the Sun Signature Series:
