The Tasting Room at 51 Lincoln debuts later this month, as an expansion of the Newton Highlands culinary team's creativity.
The concept is an often-changing, $65, five-course tasting menu, with an optional wine pairing add-on, for no more than 20 guests per night in the restaurant's updated private dining room. "During the restaurant’s tenure, classic dishes, like the bolognese and watermelon steak, have become neighborhood favorites. While we, too, love these dishes, we’re also committed to pushing the limits of our craft," the team writes in a press release.
The first Tasting Room dinner will be on Wednesday, July 29, and after that date, other nights will be open for guests to reserve via OpenTable and Reserve.
Chef/owner Jeffrey Fournier's initial menu is accompanied by wine selections from Abe Lerner of HarborSide Wines. Courses include crispy miso pork belly and clams in a mushroom-infused broth; barbecue-rubbed California tri-tip steak with sweet corn risotto, roasted tomato vinaigrette, and scallion gremolata; and more.
