THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT, THANKS EVERYONE! You may have caught the news in tablehopper last week that ~1760~ has announced their chef is Carl Foronda, who is integrating some inspiration and dishes from his Filipino heritage on the menu. I went by for brunch on Sunday, and let me tell you, it’s one of the tastier new additions to our local scene. So let’s do it up and have a tablehopper gathering!
On Sunday November 8th at 12pm, we’ll be hosting a boozy tablehopper brunch at 1760 with Campari America. It’ll be a great way to explore 1760’s menu, and we’ll be taking over the communal table in the front for a family-style feast.
The menu includes an Aperol Sbagliato on arrival (a special creation for our event by bar manager Christopher Longoria), one-eyed jacks with quail eggs, lemon mustard, and bacon; squash blossom tempura with ponzu, katsuobushi, and fennel fronds; and Little Gem salad with buttermilk-wasabi dressing, fried capers, and watermelon radish.
Next up: the crab fat congee (wait until you try this!) with crispy pork, soft-cooked egg, and heirloom tomato and corn; kimchi fried rice with pork belly and soft-cooked egg; and fingerling potatoes with charred avocado, cilantro, and roasted peanuts (this dish rocks). The pairing: the red bell pepper and cucumber Bloody Mary with sriracha, lemon, thyme, and SKYY Vodka.
The last round will be cardamom beignets with Thai basil-chocolate sauce, and to drink, the Green Cardamom Fizz with cardamom cream, lime, egg white, club soda, and Bulldog Gin.
It’s going to be a total tour de force, and the whole meal (with three paired cocktails) will only put you back $65. Seats are very limited, so get your ticket ASAP! For obvious reasons, please don’t drive. Brunch starts at 12pm, and we’ll be there until 2pm or so.
If you have dietary restrictions, you have to let us know ahead of time—since it’s going to be family style, we can’t make accommodations on the fly, thanks. Looking forward to sharing this amazing menu and killer cocktails with you!
