At City of Ate, every day is an excuse to party, especially when we've enlisted a talented chef who wants to cook a fancy four-course dinner and some spicy musical stylings from a local jazz performer for that party. Oh, and did we mention we want you to come party with us?
We cordially invite you to this month's installment of City of Ate Presents: Supper Club at The Kessler Theater, happening at 6:30 p.m.Thursday. Kelly Hightower of Nova will prepare a delicious dinner spread for the evening, and Nina Katrina will belt out some Latin jazz tunes while you rub elbows with some new dining companions.
It'll be more enjoyable than that time you took your girlfriend to that "dining in the dark" event and accidentally groped a waiter. We promise to show you a good time if you keep your hands to yourself. Tickets are $50 a person and available through Prekindle.com. We're also giving away free tickets to a few lucky readers on our website, so visit our Free Stuff page to register to win dinner on us. After the jump, check out Hightower's menu for Thursday's dinner.
First Course: Jicama, blood orange and cucumber salad with cumin agave nectar vinaigrette
Second Course: Sopa de elote with cotija cheese, crema mexicana and chili morita drizzle
Third Course: Hamachi tostada with black bean mojo and pickled ramps
Fourth Course: Lamb shank with barbacoa wild mushroom tamal and salsa boracha
