Mood: A sophisticated dinner party. A chill in the air. Unusual ingredients. Pairings of unique wines. Intriguing stories of anatomy. Mad science. Surprises.
Welcome to our twist on Halloween for bon vivants. Guests will enjoy a seated dinner showcasing Michelin Star chef Marcelle Afram’s versatile use of unexpected ingredients. A decadent three-course meal will be paired with delicious wines and a discussion on the anatomy and physiology of the (animal) body parts being devoured, led by Dr. Jonathan Reisman. This adventurous (but not grotesque) experience will delight and intrigue.
Arrive on time to enjoy a special cocktail (half hour) and a first-bite before dinner commences.
