You’ll Love This Menu—And This Party

The River Center is hosting the January dsm Dinner Party, where you can get a meal and a behind-the-scenes look at the newest issue.

Our dsm Dinner Party is just a couple of weeks away (7 p.m., Jan. 14), and the take-home dinner menu, created by chef Michael LaValle and virtual host the River Center, is in! The starter will be seafood bisque, followed by the entree of duck confit with truffle sauce and sides of spinach spaetzle, roasted winter root vegetables and a South Union Bakery demi baguette. The vegetarian option is curried tofu with lemon grass farro.

And dessert? A dark chocolate-orange tea cake, served with a side of blood orange coulis and a spice citrus French macaron from Dore Bakery.

Place your order by Jan. 12. Pickup is 5-6 p.m. on Jan. 14 at the River Center. The cost is $36 per meal, excluding drinks. (The add-on drink options include Purveyor Wine Growler for $25 or the River Center Season Cocktail for $9.) You’ll also be one of the first to receive a copy of our January/February issue. Find registration information here. We can’t wait to celebrate!
