Earth Dinners

Earth Dinner Tasting Meal 2011

In honor of Earth Day this year nicks on broadway is proud to partner with Organic Valley and Chef’s Collaborative to celebrate and bring awareness to sustainability, locally and organically grown foods, and the entire farm to table movement.  A portion of the proceeds from these dinners will go directly to Chef’s Collaborative, which is the leading nonprofit network of chefs and farmers that fosters sustainable food systems using the power of education, collaboration and responsible buying decisions.

This menu has been thoughtfully prepared to feature + represent many of the small farmers, producers + artisans that we work with every day.  Each course represents a different aspect of our local Rhode Island + New England bounty. We hope you enjoy!
