Equinox Announces Seasonal Dinner Series

From our friends at Equinox Restaurant...

Hot on the heels of their wildly successful Goose Island Game Dinner, Equinox Restaurant has announced a quarterly dining series featuring the best of the best on the grill. Each event will begin with a grill reception on the tented patio where you can mix and mingle while sampling select beers from Goose Island’s ‘Vintage’ collection. Guests will have the chance to snack on local oyster favorites like Rappahannock Rivers, Sweet Jesus & Choptanks prepared tent-side by Todd Gray and his talented team and maybe even a few culinary friends (you never know which of his industry pals might drop by and jump on the grill with Chef Gray!) Guests will then move inside the restaurant for the second part of the evening: a family-style dining experience complete with expert beer pairings and live music by The Walkaways, a local rock trio who’s known for their classic yet fresh sound.

Here’s a sneak peek at what’s coming…

Championship Rockfish Roast
Thursday, April 24th – 6:00 p.m.
Chesapeake Bay rock bass & grilled asparagus gives us our glimpse of spring.

Shellfish, diver scallops & autumn mushrooms prepared fresh on the grill will complement the late summer harvest offerings of the Mid Atlantic.

A tradition at Equinox Restaurant, this grand oyster feast precedes our annual Thanksgiving dinner.

Tickets for all events are priced at $95/person (includes tax and gratuity) and reservations are required.
