Ready for another preview taste of chef Justin Simoneaux’s upcoming cuisine for ~BOXING ROOM~? The restaurant isn’t opening until spring 2011, so the meal will be held in Absinthe Brasserie & Bar’s main dining room on January 10th, with reservations starting at 5:30pm. Celebrating his Louisiana heritage, Simoneaux’s three-course prix-fixe menu will pull inspiration from the traditional Cajun and Creole dishes of New Orleans and coastal Louisiana. Dishes include selections like seafood gumbo with housemade tasso; roasted golden trout with Brussels sprouts, sweet potato, and cipollini onions; Southern fried chicken with black-eyed peas, collard greens, and smoked ham hock; and for dessert, bananas Foster bread pudding or lemon ice box pie.
$35 (excludes beverages, tax, and gratuity). A portion of the proceeds will benefit For the Bayou, a non-profit organization fostering restoration, protection, and aid to the Louisiana coastal wetlands. For reservations, call Absinthe at 415-551-1590.
