A special “farm-to-table” wine dinner for a special cause

As fans of the Bistro may already know, the Hospice of the Western Reserve is an organization dear to our hearts. It does more for the community than many people know. The Hospice not only provides care for individuals in the final phase of life—whether at home or in one of its residences—but compassionate support for their families, education and resources, and bereavement support that is available to the entire community, not just those who lost a loved one in hospice. It’s for this reason that we’ve teamed up with Laurello Vineyards of Grand River Valley, Ohio and Cavotta’s Garden Center to present a very special summertime dinner to help benefit these wonderful neighbors and friends.

Our Farm-to-Table Wine Dinner, Thursday, July 31 at 6:30 p.m. at Cavotta’s, 19603 Nottingham Rd. in Cleveland, will bring together a bounty of the freshest, most perfectly prepared summer produce with a carefully paired complement of Laurello wines in five courses that will put the best of the season on your plate.

Join us this summer as we “tour France” in July and go “Farm-to-Table” in August

As you can see, we have some great dinners coming up for your June at the Bistro, but that’s just the beginning of the special things we have planned for you now that summer’s here. Mark your calendar and put these dates in your phone now, so you don’t miss any of these delicious events.

FRANCE IN JULY: August is the month when the French go on vacation, but July is the month the Bistro is taking you to France. First, we’re celebrating Bastille Day with a French Wine Dinner Wednesday, July 17. This feast will pair five French-inspired courses with five French wines for $60 per person plus tax and gratuity. Menu and wine list to come soon! Vegans won’t be left out of the celebration—join us for our 3-for-$30 South of France Vegan Dinner Wednesday, July 24. Menu coming soon!

“FARM TO TABLE” IN AUGUST: Here at the Bistro, we love summer because it’s that special time of year we pick vegetables and herbs for you straight from our rooftop garden and source other fresh ingredients from our local farmers. We’ll kick off our Farm-to-Table feasting with a 3-for-$30 Farm-to-Table Vegan Dinner Thursday, August 15, followed by a Farm-to-Table Wine Dinner Thursday, August 22. The wine dinner will shine a spotlight on our local Laurello Vineyards, pairing one of their wines with each of the five courses. Watch this space for menus to come!

But that’s not all. If you haven’t stopped by in a while, you’re missing out on some exciting new additions to our regular menu that you will definitely want to try. How does macaroni and cheese baked with chunks of breaded fried chicken, bacon and a wealth of incredible cheeses sound? Or try that chicken in a scrumptious penne a la vodka, or limoncello sauce with pappardelle pasta? Maybe you’re more in the mood for Steak Oscar with a crab cake? A lamb shank cooked sous vide until it’s so tender it falls off the bone? A comfort-food favorite like chicken schnitzel or sauteed calves’ liver? Or maybe some of our incredible fish dishes that change regularly depending on what’s the freshest and most delicious (and always sell out quickly)? Alaskan sockeye salmon, Florida hog snapper, Canadian walleye—see what’s on the menu tonight.

Our patio is open, so whether you’re looking for a complete dinner or just a place to enjoy wine and cocktails with friends, we’ve got a place set for you. Things are starting to heat up at the Bistro. Plan on spending some sizzling summer nights with us!
