INTRO Art Gallery & Chef’s Table‘s Black Tie Masquerade Tasting Dinner
You are cordially invited to INTRO Art Gallery & Chef’s Table Black Tie Masquerade Tasting Dinner, where you can indulge in decadence with Executive Chef Paul Shoemaker’s 10-Course Tasting Menu. Because the items on the menu are as fresh, there is no telling what may be on deck for this special evening. Past dinners have begun with the Dime Bag, a palate cleanser with foie gras powder, Cocoa Puffs, pine nuts, candy Cocoa Nibs encased in a vanishing edible bag, and have also included Edible Cocktails like the Liquid Ravioli, Mojito made of mint, rum, lime, and mint carbonated sugar; Cold Fever, a gin & tonic with silver and gold fizz, and green apple crisps, featuring Bourbon, green apple, and bourbon caviar. Two seafood dishes that will most certainly make an appearance on New Year’s Eve are the Bone Marrow Ravioli with black pearl and truffle espuma and the Butter Poached Maine Lobster. There’s also a wine pairing, Champagne cocktails, and unlimited Champagne all evening long, in addition to the Champagne toast at midnight. Of course, dancing is inevitable with the Live DJ and host, Rob “Rob C” Ciancimino, creates the narrative for the evening. Reservations are required.
