This just in: Clyde Common’s executive chef Chris DiMinno is launching a new themed dinner series the last Sunday of every month, and he’s getting this party started right—the inaugural event will take place Feb 27 and the theme is, yes, indeed, 80‘s Night.
During the decade of neon, big hair, and blow, Le Bernardin, Le Cirque, Lutèce, and Montrachet were the country’s culinary hot spots. Chefs like Gilbert Le Coze and Alfred Portale were just beginning to emerge as the first “celebrity” chefs. United by French culinary traditions and inspired by modern ingredients, these men pioneered a new understanding of American cuisine.
In honor of that era of innovation, DiMinno is serving a fleshy four course feast: Chicken terrine with roasted mushrooms, garlic sausage, lentils; foie gras ravioli with duck consommé; crispy sweetbreads with pig trotter, pommes anna, and kale; and “Death by Chocolate” cake with kiwi sorbet, raspberry sauce, white chocolate, and a chocolate leaf garnish.
When it comes to booze pairings, this dinner will center on wines, while the March event will focus on cocktails.
Keep an eye out for Patrick Bateman.
