We are staying in South America for September's brunches and dinner but moving over to the West Coast to Chile. Although they are of course known for their wine, Chilean cuisine is rather less known. It is highly likely that there will be Cerviche on the menu as well as other fish, such as sea bass or salmon caught in the rich, cold waters off the coast.
We have been enjoying the bounty of our local produce all summer long so instead of choosing a single country theme for our monthly dinner, we decided to continue to celebrate our local produce but wth flavors from a diverse set of regions and countries. As we will be guide by what is availble, we are looking for dinner guests to trust us with preparation of an interesting meal from "Around the World". As usual we anticipate a multiple course menu including a complementary cocktail. Cost is $35.00. BYOB - No Corkage.
Ben Sweet from Southside American will be playing live at the Mt Lebanon venue. Some of the songs he will be performing come from his soon to be release EP In Our Keystone State. His sound is a mix of Indie Folk, Indie Rock and Americana. Ben is a new / old local from Mt. Lebanon having relocated back after some years "living out west". He has been playing a number of shows around Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania and has an upcoming gig at Club Cafe.
Robert Morris of Backseat Romance will be opening act.
Israel is a crossroads of Jewish Arabic and Pan-Mediterranean foods and flavors. We are looking forward to exploring this with our usual style of multi-course tasting menu. Menu is fixed with only limited opportunity to substitute so when you book, please let the Barista know if you have any eating preferences or restrictions so we can see if we can accomodate these in the menu plan.
We kick off the evening at 7.00pm with a complementary cocktail. Dinner service starts around 7.30pm. Price is $35.00 pp.
For the month of June and possibly into July we are taking a break from our geographic explorations to enjoy the excellent seasonal produce as it becomes available as well as highlighting local meats and cheeses. Look out for these options through the week and especially for Sunday brunches.
There will be no monthly dinner in June but we'll get back on track in Julyor early August as the schedule comes together.

This month we travel to the cross roads of Asia - Malaysia. Aside from Malay cuisine itself, built on the exotic tropical produce of the region, there are strong influences from China and India based on the heritage of a large part of the population. Flavors of the Thai peninsular and Japan are also evident. This month is the last of our current Asian exploration.
We start serving complementary drinks at 7.00pm. First course served at 7.30pm.
BYOB - no corkage. $35.00 pp.
