We food fanatics are barraged by announcements of special events, but two came along today that grabbed my attention.
On Sunday, July 1, Heirloom Cafe is offering a mouthwatering six course summer menu with wine pairing for $75 including tax and tip, an amazing price considering that sommelier/owner Matt Straus is a great curator, and the fresh, simple food that comes out of his small open kitchen always pleases. You only can sign up for this dinner on line through BlackboardEats <email@example.com>
Here’s the menu that caught my attention.
halibut ceviche, plantain chips
pole bean salad, pickled dates, Parmesan
housemade fettucine, mussels, pesto
Liberty Farms duck breast, spoonbread, bing cherries
shortribs agrodolce, root vegetables, balsamic glaze
peaches, lemon verbena ice cream
