Last night, I went to the Birdhouse opening party with two friends. Having been a recent victim of the cheese festival shenanigans, I have been a bit leery about event organization. This party was a breath of fresh air in comparison.
Entry was $10, covering food, with proceeds going to RAINN. Since the event stated appetizers, with a cash bar, we didn't expect much. Over the next 2 1/2 hours, we worked our way through samples of the entire menu as well as complimentary pours of sparkling wine. Every time we thought we were done, a server would bring us another plate. By our count, we tried 14 different dishes, and they were all well conceived and delicious.
Highlights for us were the mushroom terrine, bison shortribs and the honey ice cream. We will certainly be back to try a full meal! Well done, Birdhouse.
