Eco Dinner

Dining with the Eco System

I am so excited to be kicking this great dinner series off at nicks!  I just spoke with Captain Chris Brown, the boat is coming in and the catch is landed.  Steve & Chris are my go to guys(at Wild Rhody), and part of the important team of local and responsible fisherman/harvesters that I am so very proud to support every day at nicks.  This is the freshest, most beautiful seafood available, hands down.  With an interesting array of abundant, underutilized and environmentally sound, conscientiously sourced species, I am hoping that we can showcase just a snap shot of what beautiful and delicious seafood we have to offer here in Southern New England.

Sarah Schumann has done such a wonderful job putting this series together.  It should prove to be a fun-filled, informative and mouth-watering night!  Without further ado, here’s the menu for tomorrow night:
