Menu for the Week of September 17, 2012 — CIVIC III — For The Love of The Game!

Crazy to believe, but CIVIC III is just around the corner!  This go-around, we embrace the cooler weather and the opening of several hunting seasons by exploring the deep, rich flavors of wild game.  Consider joining us on September 28th at CIVIC III — For The Love of the Game! 

Now, we know what some of you are thinking — “But, I don’t like ‘gamey’ meat!”  Well, that’s the same attitude some of our guests had last month about tripe and beef heart, but those ended up being two of the best received courses, even by people who SWORE they would never eat either.  So, get out of your comfort zone, come to this next installment of CIVIC, get to know your neighbors, and welcome in Fall with The Spotted Trotter and American Spirit Whiskey, who will be providing cocktails to start off the evening included in the $65/person ticket price!  For those of you who’d like to enjoy beer or wine thereafter, we’ll post some pairing suggestions as the event gets closer!


Winter Squash, Duck Fat-Fried Salsify Fritter, Pickled Chestnuts

Pheasant and Field Mushroom Terrine, Wild Greens, Sauce Bigarade

Braised Rabbit Pie, Black Truffle, Roasted Game Veloute

Spicy Printanier with Venison and Ox Tail Ragout

Broad River Blue Cheese, Warm Muscadine Compote

Gingered Pears, Devonshire Cream, Blackberry Scones

You know the drill by now, but here’s a twist.  To get back to the more intimate roots of the CIVIC idea, we will be doing only one seating at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 28th.  To reserve your spot, please email Megan at with the number of people in your party and a phone number to reach you.  About one week before the event, we will ask everyone to pay via a Paypal account that is being established as we speak.  CIVIC is a rain or shine event, and cancellations received less than 2 days prior to the event will be non-refundable.
