One annual event we neglected to mention in our Fall Preview this week is the return of Wild Game Week at Big 4. The restaurant typically hosts the series of dinners, featuring things like piranha chops and Himalayan yak tenderloin, in November, but this year they’re trying something different. Grub Street has just received word that executive chef Gloria Ciccarone-Nehls will be offering an exclusive wild game menu for parties of fourteen to twenty people throughout the fall.
Two weeks advance notice is required, and it’s $175 per person for three courses, inclusive of tax and gratuity. We’re told the menu will feature (depending on availability), both the piranha and the yak again, as well as Rocky Mountain elk, black buck antelope, and wild boar.
So if you want to feel like Teddy Roosevelt dining with oil barons in a hunting lodge at the turn of the last century, you’ll definitely want to check this out.
