Dinner will feature four courses created especially for the night by executive chef Todd Sicolo and executive sous chef Conor Favre.  Start with passed hor d'oeuvres at the 7 p.m. opening reception then enjoy a spiced apple and butternut squash bisque, savory fried apples, stuffed petite apples, an apple salad, roasted boar chops with baby root veggies, and a baked pumpkin custard with fall spiced cake for dessert. Each course will be paired with the complementing wine and port and cigars will be served after the meal. Seating is limited. $95 ++ per person. Click here for more details. 

Happy All Souls Day! 

Halloween may be over but the Day of the Dead or All Souls Day celebrations are just getting started. November 2nd is the traditional day to break out the sugar skulls and celebrate the spirit of lost loved ones. This year, honor the spirits with a loaf of Pan de Muertos or "bread of the dead". This often overlooked traditional sweet bread is flavored with just a hint of anise and is decorated with strips of bread that represent bones. Check out the recipe here
