tablehopper supper



So the holidays have ended, and now it’s time for another gathering of the gourmand tribes for the third ~TABLEHOPPER SUPPER~. I am hosting this supper at one of my very favorite restaurants, Aziza. There is room for 24 guests total, and if the last two parties are any indication, everyone is quite friendly and way into their food and drink—be prepared to talk restaurants!

We’ll start with some nibbles and a little something bubbly to drink from 6:30pm–7:15pm, and then we’ll sit down for a hearty family-style supper. Executive chef Mourad Lahlou has put together a Moroccan-inspired feast, highlighting the freshest ingredients of local farmers.

The cost is $125, with wine pairings, tax, and tip all included.

The last dinner sold out in two days, so please don’t delay if you’re interested in coming! One small detail: Aziza is closed on Tuesday, i.e. today, so pleeeeease don’t call until Wednesday to reserve your space! When making your reservation, just tell them it’s for the tablehopper supper, and be prepared to provide the reservationist with a credit card number to secure your place. Be sure to let them know if you have any dietary restrictions or queries.

Shared nibbles:
An array of spreads and flatbread; Bodega goat cheese with Joyce's cherry tomato jam, pistachios, sumac toast, argan oil; herb and citrus-marinated olives; toasted cayenne-cumin almonds

Family-Style Dinner

First Course:
A seasonal salad (weather deciding what greens are available); Knoll Farm cardoons with caper-parsley dressing; kefta and grape skewers; Prather Ranch lamb riblets

Main Course:

There will be a couple wines paired with the courses by Mark Ellenbogen.

A selection of seasonal sweet treats, and mint tea
