Cornman Farms Heirloom Harvest Dinner #1

alex-for-web$45 /dinner
Special Dinner #76

The Heirloom Harvest dinners have been so popular over the past few years that we’ve agreed to feature three across the growing season!
Cornman Farms is a pet project of Chef Alex’s that began with a field of heirloom tomatoes and has grown to a multi-acre farm growing a wide variety of flavorful, heirloom produce to serve on Roadhouse plates! Each dinner will be designed to focus on what Chef Alex and Farmer Mark are harvesting at the time. As we follow the growing season, the menus will vary to reflect the diferent vegetables being served at that moment. The series of Heirloom Harvest dinners will culminate with a menu reflecting the preservation of foods for sustenance over the winter months.
