The Harrogate R.O.M.E.O.’s (Retired Older Men Eating Out) enjoy regularly scheduled trips to local eating establishments for lunch and comradery; however, once a year they are treated to an extraordinary evening of fine dining.
Our Executive Chef, Joe Alonzo, prepares a very special dinner, accompanied by a distinctive wine with each serving and followed by an outdoor sampling of fine cigars.
This year the menu was as follows:
Pumpkin Ale Bisque with frizzled shallots and honey mustard crumbs
Rainbow Microgreen Salad featuring petite heirloom tomatoes, oven roasted grapes, radish, chili candied bacon, raps flower blossom honey and clementine golden balsamic vinaigrette
Buffalo Mozzarella Ravioli with a roasted pepper and whiskey blush sauce and Australian black chia seeds
Butcher Cut Veal Chop & Jumbo Stuffed Shrimp served with red wine reduction & lobster and crab saffron stuffing, Shiitake Mushroom Risotto and Amber Maples Glazed Carrots
Caramel Bread Pudding covered in drunken apples, vanilla ice cream and Applejack amaretto honey sauce
If you, or anyone you know is a R.O.M.E.O., why not become a member of the Harrogate family so you don’t miss the next one?
