Whist is reviving the “Savor Sunday” dinner series it started this summer. Not only is chef Tony DiSalvo back with five different themed menus of family-style comfort eats that will rotate through 2010, but he’s occasionally bringing a little seasonal sense of humor to the table too. The series kicks off this Sunday with an Oktoberfest celebration that finds the restaurant making house-made beers to pair with various wursts, spaetzel, strudel, and German sides. Following French, Spanish, and Southern U.S. menus, the versatile DiSalvo will hold two Chinese takeout dinners in a nod to the practiced holiday tradition, with squab and lettuce cups, dumplings, moo shoo pork, and Peking duck among the options. Check out the full lineup and menus for Whist’s Sunday below.
