Farmer Dinner with Red Mountain Farm and Martin Bournhonesque Tuesday, March 31

Join us for a special dinner on March 31st with two of our favorite farmers: Kylan Hoover of Red Mountain Farm(Livermore, CA) and *Martin Bournhonesque* (Salinas, CA). We'll be cooking with Kylan's exquisite Mangalitsa pigs, also known as "wooly" pigs, and Martin's legendary specialty produce, from wild arugula and cardoons to kumquats and avocados.

Both farmers will be at the dinner to interact with guests and discuss their work and products. Jesse Schwartzburg of Star Meats will also be present to discuss the fine art of butchery.

The menu will be priced a la carte, with most special items available in half-portions to allow diners to sample a larger variety of dishes...

quickly. Call us at 510.644.0444 or click here to make a reservation.
