We are going to present this seven-course dinner at Hartford Square on Saturday, June 27... a chance to showcase many of our favorite local farmers, as well as two New Mexico wineries and a young local chef, Elijah Duncan. Duncan relocated to Albuquerque a year ago from Chicago with his wife and young daughter. He has worked at Michelin star restaurants around the world, including Alinea, Noma, Mugaritz & El Buli. He believes that "cooking food is one of the most intimate things that a person can do".  He tries to see each ingredient from multiple perspectives-- as chef, diner, farmer, artist-- bringing every ingredient to it's full potential on the plate.

Each course will feature one or two farmers including Chispas & Sterling Farms, Ironwood Farm, Red Tractor Farm, Silverleaf Farm, Simple Revolution Farm, Sol Harvest Farm and Vida Verde Farm.  Chefs Elijah Duncan of Farm & Table and Shai Hayman (recently moved here from Israel) are designing the amazing menu and creating the meal.  We'll be including cheeses from Old Windmill Dairy and wines from DH LesCombes & Casa Rodena.  We hope that you can join us-- seating will be limited, so reserve soon!

The price will be $85 per person or $165 per couple.  For reservations, please call the restaurant at 265-4933 during business hours and ask to leave a message for Sarah.  Or email us at info@hartfordsq.com. Seatings will be available at 6:30, 7:00 & 7:30pm.
