The dishes at Dish: Kickin' pork green chile from Sam's No. 3

Cafe Society invited some of our favorite eateries to share samples at Dish, September 9 at Ninth Avenue Historic Park. Here's what they'll be serving:

Patrick Armatas Sam's No. 3

What dish are you serving at Dish? We're serving our kickin' pork green chile, as well as our veggie green chile; the pork green chile is easily the most popular item we serve at the restaurants. Customers like it so much, in fact, that they even bugged Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, and I guess it worked, because we were recently featured on the show. It's always funny to see people try to pigeonhole us. We're three Greek brothers and a father serving American diner fare with a Southwestern flair...with a little Mediterranean thrown in for good measure.

Before there was molecular gastronomy, before Rachael Ray and Bobby Flay hijacked the Food Network, and before Anthony Bourdain penned Kitchen Confidential, there was Dish (formerly Menu Affair), Westword's annual culinary bash that extols the city's best bites, wine sips, suds and sounds. This year's Dish, slated for Friday, September 9, at Ninth Avenue Historic Park (that's a new venue), features thirty restaurants and food trucks all invited to participate by Cafe Society scribes, along with such liquid assets as beer and wine, along with a celebration of the Art of the Cocktail, and live music from Air Dubai, Rachel Platten and Robert Eldridge.

General admission tickets are $35 in advance and $50 at the door; VIP tix, which include a food sampling reception and complimentary beer, wine or cocktails, are $75 in advance and $100 at the gate. For more info or to snag your tickets, go to
