Dining for a Cause: 5115's Pink Menu
Crispy spring rolls.
Looking for an excuse to enjoy a gourmet three-course meal while giving back to the community? All through October, 51fifteen Restaurant and Lounge (5115 Westherimer Rd, inside Saks Fifth Avenue) is hosting "Dine With Us and Donate," benefiting the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Houston Chapter.
51fifteen Restaurant & Lounge Executive Chef Pedro Silva has created a special four-course "pink themed" menu. Guests can select items such as crispy chicken and shrimp spring rolls with pickled pink ginger, lump crabmeat crostini, organic green salad with fresh fruit, pink ribbon pasta with grilled chicken, pork tenderloin with pink mashed potatoes, Norwegian salmon with grilled vegetables, and even a luscious rose cheesecake for dessert.
Each course gives diners at least two options to choose from. The four-course meal is $40 per person, with $5 per meal donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. You can also add a Sutter Home wine pairing to each course, which adds another dollar to your donation. The restaurant itself is ridiculously lush and brimming with modern opulence that matches the epicurean cuisine. Grab a date or some girlfriends and head over to 51fiteen for some amazing food with a side of self fulfillment.
