Brad Greenhill (of 312food.fm) and Gauri Thergaonkar (of Durham’s Tracklements, formerly of Zingerman’s Deli) are doing a series of six dinners at Jefferson Market on the last Saturday of every month. They say “Each of the four course dinners will vary in cuisine and concept, tied together as a series by our focus on expressing the best of the season’s ingredients and our own food stories and experiences.” Having attended one of Gauri’s spice-themed dinners at Pot & Box last year (each dinner was centered around a specific spice), we can say two things: 1. This will be good, and 2. Reserve in advance. $45/person, $65 with beverage pairings. Details and schedule at https://www.3112food.fm/saturdays.
