When: Sat., Jan. 26, 6-9 p.m. 2013
Battle the return of cold weather this Saturday at the Middleton Place Restaurant’s Braise & Brew Dinner. The menu consists of braised meats and vegetables prepared with a slow, wet-heat method, which makes for a succulent and savory flavor. Each dish comes with a carefully selected microbrew from Holy City Brewery, ranging from pilsners to porters. Guests will graze on a menu including pork shoulder, bison short rib, pork belly, duck leg, and seafood bouillabaisse, all of which are just the prelude to an even more decadent chocolate cake finale. Singer/songwriter Graham Whorley will perform during the dinner. Tickets can be purchased online. See the full menu below:
