Come by ~ORSON~ from Thursday August 19th-Saturday the 21st for a special menu that will be available, Unite For A Bite. The menu was inspired by an array of incredible women chefs, and is serving as a benefit for the Women Chefs and Restaurateurs scholarship and mentoring programs for women in the hospitality industry. Here’s the lineup: first course: strange flavor eggplant with scallion buns, inspired by Barbara Tropp; second course: spaghetti with raw tomato sauce, inspired by Lidia Bastianich; main course: grilled skirt steak with tamarind, roasted peppers, and watercress, inspired by Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken; and dessert: nectarines and plums with vanilla-goat cheese, honey, and pistachio-walnut streusel, inspired by and for Joyce Goldstein. The menu is $55, and wine pairings are $25. Their regular menus will also be available.
