This past weekend at the cafe was filled with lots and lots of chocolate gluttony. For $35, guests enjoyed a five course chocolate-themed bar-b-que. This was the fourth such dinner, and the heaviest to date, but what's Father's Day without at least one deadly sin?
The next dinner is scheduled to be Friday, July 25th, with seatings at 6.5 and 8.5pm and is a Summer Seafood theme. There will not be veggie options, so we are expecting fewer guests than normal. Reservations are limited to a total of 48 guests.
While the menu is still in development, I am working on a White Chocolate & Grilled Peach Sangria, Chile-Burnt Caramel Shrimp Ceviche, Cocoa-rubbed Seared Diver Scallop, and more! If interested, we're already taking reservations.
But what does a multi-course chocolate tasting dinner look like? Glad you asked! Dad's Day platings comin' at ya:
Artisan sausages: Chicken thai basil with ginger, Pork mole, Smoked beef cocoa-nib
Chile-roasted corn on the cobb with house-made cocoa-nib butter
Chocolate bar-b-que baked beans with cocoa-glazed durac bacon
Heirloom brandywine tomato slice with goat cheese brulee and white chocolate-balsamic drizzle
Cocoa nib-smoked bar-b-que pulled pork sammie with white chocolate slaw
