I’ve had this idea in the hopper for a while (har), and now I think it’s time to try it! I’ll be hosting my ~FIRST TABLEHOPPER SUPPER~ at Cortez, with Champagne and bites and conversation for the first hour, and then a sit-down four-course dinner for 25 will begin at 7:30pm. Envision a fun crowd of fellow food-obsessed folks (yes, you).
Co-executive chefs Seth Bowden and Louis Maldonado have put together a fab feast, check it:
~Trio of amuse
~Live baby lettuces with warmed Santa Rosa plums, Marcona almonds and Idiazabal Cheese
~Second course: choice of hand-torn noodles with foraged mushrooms, house-made smoked butter and herb jus or seared Japanese scallop with confit of sweet peppers and parsnip-vanilla broth
~Third course: choice of Painted Hills hanger steak with smoked potato puree, marrow-braised cipollini onions and roasted chiodini mushrooms or crispy poached Rhode Island striped bass with buckwheat pasta, harissa-braised cabbage and tomato aromatic broth
~Dessert: pastry chef’s selection
There is a vegetarian option available, just let Cortez know when booking. All this for $75 with wine pairings, and tax and tip included. Meow! Just call Cortez and mention you want to book your spot at the tablehopper supper.
I really look forward to seeing you there!
