GRACIOUS GOURMAND was abuzz on Friday night with people anxiously awaiting Ella Nemcova (of The Regal Vegan)'s incredible menu, featuring six courses of sophisticated flavors and textures that soon left guests joyfully full and gastronomically stimulated. The pistachio and Bing-Cherry crusted faux gras truffles over micro-greens blew my mind, and the visual presentation of the salad, complete with butterfly-shaped golden beets was a simple pleasure. The lobster mushroom entree would have pleased any ravenous foodie, swimming in a rich porcini cream sauce and paired with a kabocha puree. What was also surprising was the sparkling rose-water infused martinis with chocolate shavings featuring Kanon Organic Vodka.

Chef Ella Nemcova performed magnificently in this forum for avant garde, sustainable fare and I look forward to her sophomore performance! The next GRACIOUS GOURMAND will be December 3rd featuring Chef Matteo Silverman of 4CV. Get tickets now!
