Live Jazz & Patio Dining at Caffe Molise

In addition to outstanding fresh Italian cuisine with a focus on regional specialties, Caffe Molise has opened up their wonderful, sprawling garden patio for outdoor dining under the sun and stars. And on Fridays, Caffe Molise features live jazz on the patio with the great John Flander’s Trio. 

Along with excellent pastas, seafood dishes, salads, and more, Caffe Molise offers staff favorites like the Arista – spice-rubbed and oven-roasted pork tenderloin with a black mission fig compote, served with mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables. Enjoy it on the patio or in one of Caffe Molise’s beautiful dining rooms. 

Recreational Cooking Classes Return to PCCI

The Park City Culinary Institute – which is actually located in Salt Lake City – has announced the return of recreational cooking classes at their State Street location. According to the folks at PCCI, “Classes are hands-on with friendly, experienced instructors, and—best of all—you get to eat the results. Included with your class are recipes, ingredients, and all the tools you will need. Classes are typically 3 to 4 hours in length.”

Upcoming PCCI recreational cooking classes include Gnocchi and Red Wine, Macaron 101, Southern Comfort Dinner, Tantalizing Tarts, Summer Mediterranean Mezze, Wine and Cheese of Spain, and others. 

Grand America’s Plant-Powered Earth Day Menus

Ahead of this weekend’s Earth Day festivities, The Grand America’s Director of Food & Beverage, Regis Perret and his team informed me of the new plant-based dining options available at various of the hotel’s venues. And, it’s not just for Earth Day, these plant-based menu items are available every day. Here is the lowdown from The Grand America. 

“The Lobby Lounge is proud to offer its new PLANT + FORWARD menu. Featuring vegan and vegetarian takes on familiar favorites including the Impossible Cheeseburger, Watermelon Poke with grilled pineapple, avocado, cucumber, sesame seeds, and ponzu, and Oyster Mushroom Calamari, even guests who are not vegetarian will delight in these fresh options.”

“Vegan and French cuisine do not always go hand in hand, but diners of all types can enjoy a meal at Laurel Brasserie & Bar with options such as the Vegan Navy Bean Cassoulet, Lentil & Kale Soup with toasted chickpeas, and Brussels Sprouts topped with shallots, walnuts, Meyer lemon.”

“Finish the evening with a sultry drink in the Gibson Girl Lounge. Those who are looking to grab a plant forward option with their cocktail are wowed with choices such as the Quinoa Garden Bowl or the Tomato Fennel Soup.”
