din din Easter Brunch

From the din din newsletter

Hi all,

Easter brunch is often a more elegant and formal affair than the habitual easy Sunday morning but this year we want to give you both fuss and fun!

Bartender Kelley Swenson will join din din on Sunday, April 8th at The Little Church to pair cocktails, beer, and wine with our four course brunch.

Also in honorary attendance will be Tears for Fears & John Cusack! In the kitchen at our cocktail brunches with Distillery Row a couple of years ago, we learned that the 80s pair really well with brunch, and we wanted to share that with you as well this year. So we’ll be cranking 80s favorites and projecting romantic comedies like Say Anything!

Here’s a sketch of the menu:
we’ll mingle first over
Bleu d’Auvergne mousse on pain d’épices with dressed spring shoots
Market radishes, Ken’s country brown bread, and French butter
English Gin, Farigoule de Provence, Lemon, Honey, Egg Whites

and then brunch on
wilted chicories with baked oyster and sunchoke gratin
Manzanilla Sherry, Bitters, Grapefruit, Grey Salt
rockfish with herb vinaigrette and fennel soubise
Ayinger Bräu-Weisse (Beer) OR Macvin du Jura (Wine)
rabbit with Pineau des Charentes cream & duck egg omelette
Domaine Berthournieu 2007 Lacassagne, Vielles Vignes, Tannat
tangerine warmed in rosemary syrup with rhubarb sorbet
Old Fitzgerald Bourbon, Punt E Mes, Amaretto
