I only have 6 spots left for COOKING FOR VINCENT! Please, if you want to come, call us today and make a reservation. In case you don't know what it is.,.. We're doing a four course dinner with paired wines from the Vincent Price Wine Collection. His daughter, Victoria, my close college friend will be here. The menu is inspired by the flavor profiles of the wines and Vincent and Mary Price's landmark 1965 cookbook THE TREASURY OF GREAT RECIPES. It's $70 per person and reservations are a must. The dinner is Sunday Night November 2 at 6:30. The other cool thing is Victoria and I will be having a "conversation" about the year I helped her, with four other friends, take care of her father before he passed away from Parkinsons. It's going to be one of those special evenings, so please, if you're interested, give us a call. You can read the whole menu and a little more about the evening by clicking on the web site to - http://metrofreshatl.com/midtown/upcoming-events/cooking-for-vincent/
Last week's GradyFresh Chorus Cabaret on the MetroFresh patio netted a whopping $5400! I'm not kidding. What a total. Thank you to all of you for coming in that day. This will be enough money for the chorus to buy matching concert uniforms and take the whole chorus to see PIPPIN at the FOX. The latter may seem trivial, but let me tell you. If you're a young person who might be interested in a career in the Arts, seing a big Broadway musical might just change your life. I know it did for me. On a trip to NYC with my parents when I was in eightth grade, I began a passionate love affair with music and the theatre after seeing Shenandoah. It's important and lovely that we could help these kids possibly find their dreams.
Ok, so today is Chicken Pot Pie Soup Day! It's topped with a puff pastry and is delish! I also got a request for Lobstercados. So, yes, they are in the case as well. The will not last, so if you can't make it in for lunch, but want one, call us before 11 and we'll put it aside for you. Oh, and add $3 to each Lobstercado. Also on the menu tonight is Baramundi Fish. This is a deliciously delicate white fish, much like Sea Bass, but it's harvested from the south seas in a more sustainable way. Try it!
Come see us. It's a beautiful MetroFresh day.
