The annual Around the Globe Culinary Tour of four international sister Cities of Gastronomy is ongoing at DOWNTOWN Kitchen + Cocktails through November 13.  The next stop on the tour will feature a special menu based on the cuisine of Florianópolis, Brazil, which was named a UNESCO City of Gastronomy in 2014. The new menu will be available July 18 through August 21 (along with the regular dinner menu).

Pop Up Dinner

Chef Devon Sanner, Executive Chef at the Carriage House, will lead a cooking class on Friday, July 21.

Kingfisher is back from vacation (rested I hope?) and their culinary road trip with regional flavors of the Great Plains/Midwest including the Dakotas, Illinois, Wisconsin, etc. Think Great Lakes fish, lake perch, bison, chicken pot pie, buckwheat grain, chow-chow, Brats, corn, Hoosier sugar cream pie and regional beer.
