The Drawing Room In Cos Cob Hosts Artist’s Table Dinner Series

CTbites Team

The Drawing Room in Cos Cob is excited to announce it’s first Artist’s Table Dinner Series. The Drawing Room is an intimate gem, with a small dining room and garden patio that extends the tiny restaurant in the warm seasons and a newly remodeled art gallery in the space adjacent to the cafe.

“The Artist’s Table”, is a seated, plated dinner, with limited seating, situated right in their beautiful gallery, featuring local farms, artisanal cheeses and fresh, local ingredients, which highlight particular artworks and artists in their current exhibit. This Dinner Series is an exciting combination, bringing together art and food lovers and alike.

The season kicks off on March 24th @ 6:30 PM, when their executive chef, Paul Lockely teams up with Bjorn Eicke of Thomas Henkelmann to artfully create a five course dinner inspired by artworks from the current exhibition “Homeland.” Each course is well thought-out and inspired by the current collection of artwork in the gallery.  (See menu below)  In other words, each dish is based on a piece of artwork. 

Tickets must be purchased in advance with your reservation, and are limited to eight for each dinner.

If you visit our website you can compare the dishes on the menu below with the artwork that is shown.  There is also additional information about the Artist Table there.
