Wow, what a week it's been for Menu of Menus®. Fifteen new restaurants signed up to join us on April 8 (that's next Tuesday) from 7 to 10 p.m. at Silver Street Station for food, drinks and the epic Iron Fork competition.
If Latin food is more your speed, Peruvian restaurant La Guitarra con Sazón will be joining us, along with Trenza, a Latin American/Indian fusion restaurant from celebrity chef Susie Jimenez. Also bringing some South American flair to the mix is Batanga, a tapas restaurant featuring Spanish and Latin cuisine. Batanga won't be the only tapas joint in the house, though; we'll also have Andalucia providing more traditional Spanish bites.
For many, it will be a first time to meet Ripe Cafe when chef/owner Stephanie Hobin brings her healthy food out of local farmers' markets and into Menu of Menus. Cafe Pita + will also be bringing its own brand of healthy(ish) Mediterranean food to the mix.
Like Ripe Cafe, Zelko Bistro's chef, Jamie Zelko, is committed to using healthy, local ingredients in her cooking, which she'll be showing off for the crowd. So, too, will Heights General Store, another new restaurant dedicated to "fresh, natural and locally-sourced items."
