Gone are the Winter weathered days of braised meats and heavy sauces. It’s April now, and in these next few months, the crowds crave the fresh, bright, and zippy. The world’s a-bloomin’, and the farm-to-table restaurants are locked and loaded.
For example, chef Al Paris of the timely named Heirloom will be hosting farm-to-table stalwart Josh Lawler (chef/owner of The Farm & Fisherman) for an evening of what it really means to be eating well in Spring. As the third installment of their Chef Collaboration series, Buds, Blooms & Wild Asparagus will be an exciting five course prixe fixe menu, for $75 a pop (plus tax and gratuity) on Wednesday, April 24th. The first seating’s at 5:30 pm, and the next is at 8 pm, and the menu will be featuring all those funny-named vegetables you always have questions about. Fiddleheads? Stinging Nettle? Sounds
Here’s the menu. If you find it intriguing, make sure to call and reserve, because when the weather’s this nice (with the exception of today), people get excited, and excitement makes people hungry.
