Diner’s Agenda is getting in touch with its animal side.
Wednesday, April 18
•According to Wikipedia, the bobcat is a carnivorous animal that consumes a wide variety of creatures. Be like the bobcat at tonight’s BobCat dinner at The Butcher Shop, where wine experts Cat Silirie and Bob Lindquist will offer some very fine parings to chef Greg Reeves’ omnivorous menu. The event begins at 7:00 and $125 gets you halibut, nairagi, lobster, duck, and lamb, along with several less meaty treats. Call (617) 423-4800 to save your place. [The Butcher Shop: At The Table]
