Kitchen on Cary is excited to announce the menu for our upcoming Tuesday Wine Dinner. A regular event known and loved by Richmond Foodies, this Tuesday’s event starts with an embrace of local providers. Our friends at the local Flour Garden Bakery in Richmond are providing the Crostini, while Manakintowne Farms supplies the Pea Shoots directly from their farm on the banks of the James River in Powhatan. Both will enhance the White Balsamic Grilled Eggplant first course.
