Meal on June 2 at Town restaurant, Elgin Street, to raise money for a public skateboard park
MAY 27 14 – 5:15 AM — Just a quick heads-up for a superlative public culinary event this Monday, June 2, at Town restaurant, 296 Elgin St., where nine Grade 12 culinary arts students in the Restaurant Management program at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School, with support of Antique Skate Shop, will prepare a special four-course menu.
Tickets are $65 for the 6:30 p.m. dinner, or $85 with wine pairings. Profits go to the Ottawa Skateboard Community Association #1SquareFoot project charity, which is raising money for a custom concrete skateboard park in McNabb Park at Gladstone and Bronson avenues.
“We’re maxing out at 50 people,” says Town co-owner Lori Wojcik, “but we’d be happy with about 30 to 35 for dinner.
“There’s also an after-dinner party starting at 9 p.m. with a donation.
Town restaurant and its co-owners Lori Wojcik and chef Marc Doiron are among local restaurants and chefs who have regularly helped with the school’s annual student fund-raiser, a gala evening called Food for Thought, since the restaurant opened in 2010.
The dinner menu looks like this:
– Halibut ceviche with chilled spring pea soup
– House-made ricotta-stuffed ravioli, grilled asparagus and roasted tomato ragu
– Arugula pesto marinated chicken, creamy polenta, broccoli rabe
– Dark chocolate lava cake, rhubarb sorbet.
As well, snacks after 9 p.m. are:
