Timothy Dean cooks at the aquarium

Timothy Dean musselsThe National Aquarium kicks off its latest sustainable seafood dining series next week with an appearance by former "Top Chef" contestant and Prime Steakhouse owner Timothy Dean.

The full menu isn't available yet, but the entree will be mussels.

The event, from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday, includes a cocktail reception, a cooking demonstration by Dean, a three-course meal prepared by The Classic Catering People and an after-hours stroll through the aquarium. 

Cost is $79 for aquarium members, $89 for non-members.

The Fresh Thoughts dining series will feature another "Top Chef" alum, Tamesha Warren of The Oval Room in Washington, in November; and chef Jason Ambrose of Salt in January.

Details for those dinners are available online.

Sustainable food from a man who cant sustain a restaurant.

This is great. I'll be in town that week visiting my daughter and we were planning on a trip to the aquarium. This sounds like the perfect deal.
