Using fresh local ingredients, Chef Denzell is dedicated to reintroducing timeless tastes via techniques pioneered and perfected by those who came before us to lay the foundation of professional American cookery.
Menu for January 16, 2021:
Chicken with Dumplings (hearth-cooked chicken, corn dumplings, seasonal vegetables)
Glazed Buttered Carrots (hearty carrots softened in butter; glazed with honey and spices)
Crusty Whole Wheat Yeast Bread (baked in a Dutch oven over glowing coals)
Warm Gingerbread with Vanilla Frosting (gingerbread cake with clove & allspice; house-made vanilla frosting) ($5 extra)
This dinner is a staple of the renowned chef, Edna Lewis, whose exemplary style changed the world view of Southern cooking and its place in the history of American fine dining. We also celebrate Ms. Lewis’s strong connection to Brooklyn, where she helped reinvent the historic downtown Brooklyn restaurant, Gage & Tollner.
