The meal features the culinary skills of Bentleys Chef Jesse McNally and guest chefs Kenny Scott and Jeremy Umansky. Both visiting chefs are formerly of Restaurant Trentina, a James Beard Award-recognized eatery in Cleveland, Ohio, which was named a Top 50 USA Restaurant in 2015. The chef duo is in the process of opening their own eating establishment, Larder: A Curated Delicatessen and Bakery, in Cleveland.
Chef McNally says, “Kenny Scott is a good friend from Virginia. We cooked together for a while. Jeremy Umansky is a chef Kenny met when he moved to Cleveland, and he is starting to work on projects with him in the Cleveland area. Both chefs have a lot of knowledge and many skills that we are excited to bring to the area. The evening should be a blast for our guests and us. It’s always so much fun to get friends together and cook.”
Seating is offered at 6:30pm for the five-course, prix fixe meal. The menu features adventurous dishes such as koji-cured meats and pickles, monkfish liver torchon, koji fried chicken, and amazake grit pudding. (The complete menu is on the restaurant’s website.) The cost is $60 per person (excluding taxes and gratuity.) Craft beer and wine pairings for each course will be offered at an additional cost. Reservations are required.
