Family-Style Dining: Dining for this event has been designated as Family-Style. The food bill will be split evenly between all attendees. Attendees will be responsible for paying for their own beverages. Please note that flexibility is an important part of family-style dining, and if you want to take a chance on attending, you have to be amenable to what the group/AO will order. You don't have to eat everything that is ordered, but everyone pays equally, whether you eat everything or not. Why this policy? The goal for family-style dining is to allow for the entire group to sample as wide a variety of dishes as possible. If one or more attendees choose to order on their own, that limits the group's choices, which defeats the purpose of what Family-Style Dining is all about. If this definition of Family-Style Dining doesn't feel comfortable, this may not be the right type of event for you.

A few years ago, I hosted a Portuguese Pastry Tasting at Natas Pastries for Pleasure Palate and that's when I actually got to try the actual signature pastry of Portugal, the Nata (see picture above). Well, forward a few years and now Natas has expanded their space to include a Portuguese Restaurant and would love for us get a Taste of Portugal through a multi-course Portuguese meal. How can I say no to that?
For $33.00 (not including Pay Pal fees), our meal will consist of the following:
Pasteis de Bacalhau
(Portuguese version of Crab Cakes made with Salt Cod)
(Variety of imported Portuguese Sausages/Chouriços Grilled)
Café Marinated Olives
(Imported Olives marinated in house served with Artisan Bread)
(Traditional Soup of Kale and Mashed Potatoes)
Carne de Porco à Alentejana
(Traditional Dish of Pork, Potatoes and Clams Stew)
Bacalhau com Natas
(Salt Cod baked in the Oven with Potatoes and Cream)
Served with Organic Baby Greens Salad tossed in our Balsamic House Vinaigrette
(Our most popular pastry and the signature pastry of Portugal)
Salame de Chocolate
(Chocolate mixed with butter cookies biscotti, dipped in Chocolate)
Lemononade, ice tea and coffee are included with the meal
Optional 2 Portuguese Wines with Dinner and Port with Dessert for additional $10.00
(These Portuguese wines aren't currently available in any stores and are exclusive from Natas' Portuguese wine distributor)
This definitely sounds like it'll a tasty way to spend an early Sunday evening, so I hope you'll join me. :)
