From a press release:

This June, Mandu will celebrate Executive Chef Yesoon Lee’s birthday with a special collaboration dinner featuring Executive Chefs Scott Drewno of The Source, Haidar Karoum of Proof/Estadio/Doi Moi, Jonah Kim and Yoji Harada of Pabu, and Will Morris of Vermilion.

Priced at $50 per person, including house wine but not including tax and gratuity, the six-course dinner, served family style, will be held on Sunday, June 9th at 7:00 PM in the first floor dining room of Mandu’s K St. location. The dinner will begin with an assortment of canapés made by all the participating chefs and guests will sip Makkoli, a fermented chilled Korean rice wine with their courses. 50% of the proceeds from the dinner will be donated to the DC Youth Orchestra.

“The local food community here really feels like an extended family, and what better way to celebrate a birthday than with your friends and family,” says Danny Lee, co-owner of Mandu and Chef Lee’s son. “Scott, Haidar, Jonah, Yoji and Will are such accomplished chefs of Asian food and this dinner is a fun way for us to learn from each other.”

Guests at the dinner will be treated to a wide range of Asian flavors including Korean, Japanese, Thai and Chinese. For one-night only, the dining room will be split into long communal tables to encourage friends and strangers to share a meal with each other.
