dinner with the architects

we are thrilled to announce our friends at square feet studio who joined us for dinner. they are a very talented group who have worked on some beautiful and comfortable eateries around town like, west egg cafe and abattoir. we look forward to working with them in the future! the following are snapshots from the evening, but for even better imagery, please visit blake burton's photography site. blake is one of the newer architects at sfs and has an insane eye for detail!

roasted local beets, avocado, sweetgrass dairy goat cheese, tarragon and citrus vinaigrette.

japanese hamachi with soy marinated lacinato kale. the marinated kale has a very seaweed like quality. add mustard oil to stand in for wasabi and you have a strangely familiar japanese style dish.
chicken liver mousse trio. three different condiments. bread and butter shallots, roasted grape salad with hazelnuts and orange marmalade with basil.
for the main course, pan roasted north carolina flounder with crystal organics peas and carrots and green garlic risotto.
grandma would be proud! blueberry cake with cream cheese frosting and blueberry compote.

thank you to john, vivian, blake, tessa, jeremy, julie, lauren, wendy, mark and dena!
