After waiting over a year to open their doors, Chasing Sage this week announced they will officially begin offering indoor dining and full dinner service on Wednesday, June 23rd. The restaurant is located at 267 Rutledge Avenue.
For owners Walter and Cindy Edward and Forrest Brunton, this opening has been a long time in the making. Originally set to open in March 2020, the pandemic postponed the restaurant’s opening but didn’t stop the team from adjusting their game plan. Last summer, Chasing Sage launched a pop-up series, featuring a regularly-changing takeout menu of globally-inspired cuisine.
“It’s been great to connect with our neighbors during our pop-up series, and it was also fun because it was a little more casual,” said GM Maxfield Clarke. “I think it appealed to some people who might never have come to eat here if we had just opened as Chasing Sage. Hopefully, we were able to bring people a little comfort when things were looking bleak. Now we are looking forward to giving our neighbors a place to come together and to celebrate, the way we originally intended.”
When Chasing Sage opens for dinner service on June 23rd, they’ll introduce their original concept, which they say is “rooted in thoughtful ingredients and refined shared plates.” The menu will consist of a rotating list of small plates ranging in price from $9 to $19. Chefs Edward and Brunton say their menu draws inspiration from their years spent in the Pacific Northwest and abroad.
“We’ve had a lot of fun playing with different cuisines during the pop-ups, but now that we are back to testing dishes for the opening menu,” said Chef Forrest Brunton. “It’s reenergizing getting back to the food we always wanted to cook.”
Chasing Sage will be open for dinner Tuesday through Thursday from 5:30 pm to 10 pm and Friday and Saturday from 5:30 pm to 11 pm, with Saturday and Sunday brunch coming soon. Reservations can be made on Resy.
