Mica’s Chef Wants to Take You to a Different Country Every Week
Like we said last week before his lamb dinner, Mica’s new chef Yianni Arhontoulis is getting comfortable in his recently acquired restaurant. And he’s getting involved with all of those extra-curriculars chefs get to do when they’re not brand new business owners, like theme-y tasting dinners.
Starting this week, he’s launching a new dinner series called “From ___ With Love”. Every Wednesday and Thursday, he’ll pick a new regional cuisine to showcase — four courses for $45. And he’s kicking off the series tomorrow, April 5th, with a little jaunt to Morocco.
From Morocco with love…
Hand rolled couscous with raw beet, rose water and za’atar
Chicken tagine with harrissa, green olive and burnt honey
Lamb Basteeya with almond, dried apricot and ras el hanout
Semolina and almond cake with lemon and orange blossom
Expect some small Moroccan snacks dispersed throughout the meal as well. Make your reservations by calling the restaurant at 267-335-3912.
