Local Food, Fall Favorites, Four Courses, & Just $39
For Sonoma’s eighth locavore dinner, Chef Michael E. Bonk honors the harvest season. And what better way to celebrate than by featuring late-fall’s most beautiful and unique produce? Chef Bonk will be working with some well-known autumn favorites, such as heirloom pumpkins, and he will also incorporate some lesser-known varietals into the menu, such as blue hubbards, delicatas, red kuris, and heart of gold squashes.
All of the produce will be coming from our friends at Tuscarora Organic Growers, a certified organic cooperative in Pennsylvania. Chef Bonk will offer his four-course Locavore Harvest menu for $39 per person. Chef Bonk will cook comfort dishes with full-fall flavors ranging from kabocha squash soup, with lobster, carrot and ginger to local striploin with gourd ratatouille garnished with pumpkin oil.

An evening of excellent seasonal, local food merits a selection of unique wines hand-picked by Sonoma’s new wine director Fred Uku, who has created a special flight paired with the evening’s menu for $17.00. If you like to keep your wine as local as your seasonal ingredients, we’ll have a selection from Virginia’s Boxwood Vineyards priced at $22 a bottle.
The Locavore Dinner Series @ Sonoma provides Chef Bonk with the opportunity to explore and share his personal culinary influences through special seasonal menus, and we hope you can join us for this special mid-Atlantic Autumn menu.
We hope you can join us. Reservations can be made by calling Sonoma at 202.544.8088 or through OpenTable on our website at Sonoma.
