The Watertable Eat in Season Challenge menu
Next week is the beginning of the Eat in Season Challenge that local locavores (that sounds weird) have made to restaurants.
I'm going to publish the menus of the dinners every week while the event is going on. Here's the first one, which starts May 19 and runs through the week. Reservations are a good idea.
I'm also going to include the info on the local purveyors, even though it sounds like their ad person wrote it. Why not give them a plug?
Watertable is located on the fifth floor of the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel at 202 E. Pratt St. The phone number for reservations is 410-685-8439.
The menu: ...
