Dancing Marlin’s Summer Tasting Event Contest | And the winner is… Nestled in the Chicago South Suburbs, just minutes from Orland Park, our Frankfort, Illinois seafood-centric restaurant loves to incorporate our diners in the process of creating our seasonal menus. In anticipation of tonight’s Summer Menu Tasting Event, we posed an exciting challenge to our customers, offering one lucky winner two complimentary seats at our chef’s communal Kitchen Table for the event, which will feature a multi-course meal highlighting items from our soon-to-be-released seasonally inspired Summer menu, including: bacon-wrapped figs, house porchetta with fresh sage, rosemary, garlic and orange zest, Spanish paella with chorizo, chicken and shrimp, chocolate cheesecake and much more! Contestants were asked to tell us in 50 words or less why they love our shared plates dining concept. Winner of our contest, Dianne G. of Frankfort, Illinois, perfectly put into words her love of our shared plates concept:

“What if I don’t like it?”

“I’ll stick with what I know.” “I should’ve ordered that.” Those conversations don’t happen with small plates. “Okay, I’ll try.” “Get a little of everything in your bite.” “Amazing.” “Just one more plate… maybe two.” Sharing. Daring. Learning. Exploring. The power of small plates. safe_image  

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again, we are nothing without our fans. We truly appreciate the opportunity to welcome patrons into our restaurant to share plates, drinks, and conversation day in and day out. We are thrilled to finalize our new Summer Menu tonight and hope to provide a dynamic dining experience to all who join us this Summer and beyond!

Be on the lookout for future details on how YOU can join us at our Fall Menu Tasting Event!

Eat. Drink. Share.
