Announcing Clyde Common’s New Themed Dinner Series

The hip downtown eatery begins a monthly Sunday dinner series by indulging in the decade of greed.

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.

WHERE: Clyde Common, 1014 SW Stark St

WHEN: Sunday, Feb 27, 6:30pm

PRICE: $65 for 4 courses with wine pairings; $50 for 4 courses without pairings; reservations available at 503.228.3333 and [email protected]
