It started with just 35 people invited on Facebook, but Nathan Okuley has opened his “intimate” dinners to the public. For seven weeks during the summer, he will be going to seven restaurants in seven neighborhoods, and it’s not just for friends. “It’s where great stories get told and connections get made. It’s a connecting point for strangers, and a chance to make memorable moments,” he told Columbus Underground. Below is the list for the different restaurants and dates throughout the summer.
Saturday July 12 — Ray Rays Hog Pit; Clintonville
Tuesday July 15 — Jobu Ramen; Grandview
Thursday July 24 — Rishi Sushi; Downtown
