Ordering is now live for the Beautiful Swimmer (instagram) pop-up takeout dinner by chef Ben Jackson.
The menu for the 3-course takeout dinner for two will feature:
- Steamed greens and clams agrodolce
- Chicken meatballs over sprouted lentils
- Fishcake and scallops, turnip and laminaria, swimming in broth
Pick-up for the dinner will be on March 5th with time slots available from 5 – 7:30 pm. Tandem Coffee is lending out Little Tandem in East Bayside (122 Anderson Street) for Beautiful Swimmer to use as pick-up location for the night.
