Kin Shop Wants to Forage for Your Lunch

Autumn olive berries will spice up cocktails.

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.
