While we were dining, David Sweeney, our city's unparalleled vegetarian chef, stopped by too. Sweeney has worked for Restaurant Eugene since closing Dynamic Dish. I told him I thought it was time for him to open another restaurant and he looked momentarily dazed. "I'm still recovering from the first one," he said.
The only chef who was missing was Riccardo Ullio, whose new restaurant, Escorpion Tequila Bar and Cantina, is scheduled to open this evening.
Chef Lance Gummere was on his game last night, concocting $3 sliders of duck pot pie, barbacoa chicken, chilled beef heart, pork belly and lots more.
CORRECTION: It turns out that Escorpion is not opening tonight. The opening has been delayed until next week, Monday at the earliest.

Nothing wrong with grease on the walls if the burger is tasty.
