Farmed And Foraged At Almond

Almond Restaurant will host a special Autumn Dinner on Monday, November 15, featuring farmer, forager and guest chef Jack Formica. This third annual event features a six-course, plant based menu almost entirely sourced from the East End. Dishes include ocean salt potatoes, wild allium and smoked potato soup, hen of the woods and native corn tostada, gold beet salad, confit chicken of the woods and an acorn and maple cookie.

“I like to say that this is ‘true East End cuisine’ as 98 percent of this menu is locally sourced,” said Formica. “This event is as much of an education as it is an eating event as so many people do not realize how many native plants are out here and can find their way to your plate.”

The special menu, $95 per person plus tax and tip, will be offered from 5 to 9 p.m. on Monday, November 15. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 631-537-5665. Almond Restaurant is at 1 Ocean Road, Bridgehampton.
