Citrus Modernista Dinner

On Friday, February 20, David Kinch presents the Citrus Modernista Dinner, a once-a-year celebration of local, California Coast citrus. Chef Kinch will cook a special five-course dinner with hard-to-find varieties of citrus including Mandalo and Ruby Red grapefruit, Kalpi lime, Kishu mandarin, Vangassay lemon, calamondin, yuzu, Mexican lime, and Indio Mandarinquat. This extraordinary citrus is grown in the sunlight and clean air of the Santa Cruz Mountains, just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. Two wine pairings selected by sommelier Jeff Bareilles will be available. Open seating begins at 5:30 p.m., with the last seating at 9:00 p.m. The Citrus Modernista Dinner is $140 per person, exclusive of wine, tax, and gratuity.
