feast v. famine
If you've dined at Heart before, you may have noticed that we are of the Mick Jagger school of philosophy. Namely, we believe that "Anything worth doing is worth overdoing" -- and we endorse that sentiment with hearty wines, stinky cheese and creative uses of meat. In today's glum-leaning world, who wants to go out to dinner at a restaurant and share polite conversation over plates of salad? We'd rather sit at a big table, meet some new friends and eat pate.
To each his or her own.
But still. If you enjoy a good, rollicking dining experience every now and then (and we know you do), we can't wait to introduce you to our private dinner series. It's going to be less like going to a restaurant and more like going to a dinner party at your best friend's house. But the food will actually be amazing.
The first event, a four-course food & wine extravaganza in the style of Segovia, Spain, goes down on Tuesday, April 27. We still have some seats available, and we're offering first dibs to our newsletter subscribers .
Located north of Madrid, Segovia is an ancient city of Castile and Leon that is famous for its rich, Romanesque cuisine. In other words, it is practically the world's capital of roast suckling pig, and Kitchenette is bringing this herculean feat of pork, plus several other classic dishes, to Heart, where they will meet their wine soul mates inside of your mouth.
A feast is in the works.
We're not going to give the whole menu away (it is a "secret" dinner, after all), but we'll have pulpo (slow simmered octopus off the plancha with fresh lemon), spanish cheeses, patatas panaderas, and so much more, along with live entertainment. And then there are the wines we're pairing to each course. Have you seen our shelves? We're obsessed with Spain, so expect some reserve selections that will blow your mind.
So, stop procrastinating and save your spot. Once we're booked, we're locking the doors and eating/drinking the house down. To make a reservation, email us at [email protected] with your name, phone number and number of guests in your party.
We can't wait to see you here.
