In these days of cook-offs, food feuds and chef smack-downs, it’s always nice to see restaurateurs come together to collaborate rather than compete. That’s the way Bistro Montage chef/owner Enosh Kelley and two other local chefs felt as they designed next month’s Passport to Fine Dining program.

Kelley has teamed with David Baruthio, chef/owner of Baru 66, and Michael Leo, chef/owner of Strudl Haus (an Austrian café) for an enticing way to nudge food lovers to dine out during what is generally a slow season for restaurants. During July, when you dine at all three restaurants and order the four-course $40 “Passport” menu at each, you’ll receive a stamp on your “passport” (a clever card you receive at the first place you dine).

After you’ve collected stamps from all three locations, you’ll be entered to win a drawing. The prize: A dinner for six prepared by the three chefs at a location to be determined. Second prize includes a $40 gift certificate from each restaurant, while third prize is a bottle of wine from each restaurant.
