SingleThread @ Blue Sky

January 18th – 22nd

Reprising a past residency at Wanship’s Blue Sky, the Sonoma 3 star Michelin restaurant are returning for 2024. Dinner is priced $400 per person, with another $400 for beverage pairings. Each evening will see two settings with fourteen guests. Here’s the full presser preview from organizers:

Chef Kyle and Katina Connaughton of 3 Michelin Star SingleThread announce “Title Page,” their second annual residency at The Lodge at Blue Sky from January 18-28, 2024. Taking place in Blue Sky’s intimate Wine Room, this multi-course omakase menu will take guests on a transformative culinary journey. As guests savor their opening bites, they’ll be presented with a brief film directed by filmmaker Justin Taylor Smith which explores the ‘why’ beyond the menu. The trailer tells the nuanced stories of the farmers, growers and purveyors who lovingly cultivate the ingredients which appear on the plate. When presented with each subsequent course, diners will have forged a deeper understanding of, and appreciation for, the passion and artistry that has gone into producing each ingredient. Embracing the serene elegance of winter, while infusing subtle elements of a traditional omakase experience, The Lodge at Blue Sky’s cozy Wine Room will be visually transformed utilizing natural decor materials that have been foraged from Blue Sky’s 3,500 sprawling acres.”
