Chef Tim McKee’s newest restaurant, Sea Change, opening July 20 at the Guthrie Theater, is designing a core menu that focuses on sustainable seafood, highlighting fisheries that use environmentally responsible methods of gathering and farming seafood. The menu also will include a number of nonseafood items.
Cue, the present restaurant at the Guthrie, closes June 22, and the space will undergo interior renovations, with a gala reopening on July 20. Sea Change will operate seven days a week.
McKee said, “I’m excited about our plans for Sea Change. I’m very committed to the idea of sustainable seafood, which means buying from fisheries that are dedicated to making sure fish populations are well-managed. We’ll be looking at things like catch numbers and gathering methods in choosing our ingredients.”
