“Winter Squash Harvest” Menu is Our 2012 Finale

November’s “Winter Squash Harvest” will be our final prix-fixe week of 2012, so if you’ve missed the opportunity to make one of these culinary treats, plan to join us next week:  November 13 to 17 starting at 5 p.m., which is one week ahead of our normal schedule because of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Chef Alexander’s imaginative menu is a beautiful farm-to-table extravaganza showcasing the best of Placer County and beyond.  How about these choices as a starter?  Spaghetti Squash Latkes, Kabocha Squash Gnocchi or Roasted Heirloom Squash Bruschetta.  As a second choice, I’m going with the Musque De Provence Pumpkin Soup. . .you timid types will opt for Mixed Fall Lettuces.

There are three awesome main course options:  Seared Dayboat Scallops (with Delicata Squash Puree), Pumpkin Risotto and Niman Ranch Port Porterhouse (with Winter Squash Hash).  Click here for full details about preparations and desserts.

Format is the same:  four courses, with choices, for $49 per person plus tax and tip.  One of our crack staff will help you select a wine to pair with your dinner, or ask for a Kindle and find your own using our Digital Wine List.

Be sure to make reservations because our last event, “Fall in New England”, was a virtual sell-out and our biggest ever week in the restaurant.  Call 530-823-0320 for reservations or do-it-yourself at www.opentable.com.
