Fall arrived a little early at the Dogwood. Galen Sampson's autumn menu is up and running.
Here's what's making me hungry right now:
A starter of radishes served open-face on a baguette with herbs, butter and red sea salt; Simmer Rock Farms beets and honeycrisp apples with honey-lime vinaigrette with toasted fennel seeds; escargot in roasted baby pumpkin with fennel and leeks; North Carolina rainbow trout with four-grain pilaf and a side of Tuscan-style roasted cauliflower with sweet garlic, crusty bread anchovies and Parmesan.
Take a look. And take a look to at Sampson's new four-course autumn menus. The $52 Market Menu includes lamb osso buco, smoked corn and mussel chowder and pan-seared scallops. The $42 Vegetarian Market Menu is available. Add $25 to either menu for four 4-ounce wine pours with each course.
The Dogwood has one of the city's most appealing schedule of weekly and daily specials, including a Progressive Oyster Happy Hour, Mid-Week Community Specials on cioppino and fried chicken and specials on Italian wines, sparking wines, noble grapes and even wines made by women.
