Description

Join us for a celebration of the essence of spring, featuring a pescatarian or  plant-based 5-course tasting. 

Here's what the chef shared for our first spring menu:

First up we've got a cute lil tamal, done in the style of Southern Mexican tamales(wrapped in banana leaves) stuffed with banana flower and flor de loroco served with a chile cascabel and coconut cream sauce and a little flash fried flor de loroco.

The second course is a fresh spring salad of lightly pickled fiddlehead ferns, roasted petite carrots, fresh snap peas, and dandelion greens tossed in an apricot & white balsamic vinaigrette.

Third course is a gnocchi made of potato and tender leek greens, some braised leek-white medallions, and some of our koji pickled peas, tossed in our carrot top pesto and dressed with leek top oil and some Meyer lemon and blood orange zest.

If you're pescetarian, the fourth course is a whole pan-seared silver pomfret. If you're choosing the plant based option, we are making a house made pepita curd. It's similar to tofu but so much more flavorful with a wonderfully bouncy texture. Either option is served with our house made heirloom blue corn grits and a salsa macha made with chile cascabel and mango.

Lastly, we've got our nod to everyone's favorite down-home dessert classic: banana pudding. Instead of pudding, we are using a vanilla panna cotta with slices of sweet banana, a vanilla wafer crumble, and a reduction of strawberry and rosé.

 

There are two seating options available, 6:00 - 8:00 p | 8:15-10:15 p 

Cost includes 5 course tasting + gratuity

Alcohol pairing available for purchase at the event
