As Chef Katie Button appears on television sets around the world in her hosting debut on The World's Best Chefs, fans of this up-and-coming celebrity chef and her inventive cooking are in for a special treat.

Beginning this evening, Button will be hosting Tuesday Tasting Menu events at Nightbell Restaurant & Lounge.

Each dinner is a prix-fixe, five-course meal featuring new cuisine created solely for these special evenings. Diners may also add optional wine or cocktail pairings, selected by co-owner (and Button's husband) Felix Meana.

Nightbell, which opened in February, has become known for its petite versions of classic dishes, like bit-sized steak tartare in crispy cones or ceasar salad served in jicama-shell tacos. The restaurant recently moved to a full menu of sweet and savory bites, plus a build-your-own burger and an ever-changing menu of creative cocktails.

Tuesday Tasting Menu dinners will be held in three-week series, with the first being October 7, 14 and 21. The two remaining series for 2014 will be held November 4, 25 and December 2, and December 9, 16 and 23.

Dinners run $48 per person, not including beverages, tax or gratuity, and beverage pairings with cocktails or wine can be added for $30 or $34, respectively. Reservations are available by calling 828-575-0375 (after 3 p.m., Wed.-Sun.) and require a $25 non-refundable reservation fee.
