Presumably as part of some sort of detox plan before he starts eating ostrich schnitzel all the time at his upcoming place, Marrow, Kin Shop’s Harold Dieterle is hosting a special foraged-foods luncheon on November 19. The $50 meal includes four courses highlighting locally picked plants (sample dish: roasted pigeon breast with foie gras, bitter greens, mini sunchokes, and angelica leaf curry). There’s a cocktail pairing for $25 extra, featuring quaffs fashioned from housemade drinking vinegars (trrrend alert!) in flavors including autumn olive berry, shown right. Lunch runs from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m and reservations may be made by calling the restaurant.
