Melting Pot Dinner at Fire

Head over to Fire Food & Drink tonight for a multi-media celebration of Cleveland’s culinary heritage. From appetizers to desserts, the seven-course dinner focuses on delightful dishes culled from the city’s early immigrants: the German, Irish, Polish, Italian, Czech, English, and Russian-Jewish flavors in our local melting pot. “With the city’s West Side Market marking its 100th anniversary this year, we thought this would be a great way to promote them and to connect what we do — the local, seasonal focus — to Cleveland’s ethnic legacy,” says chef-owner Doug Katz. The result includes dishes like housemade veal bratwurst, pork cutlet with cabbage and pierogi, and crab cakes and baked beans. Personally, Katz says he’s looking forward to the garlic soup. “Ian Thompson, my chef de cuisine, has made it before and it’s delicious: smooth, sweet, and not at all pungent.” Each course is paired with a complementary beverage, including drinks like rum punch, Czech ale, and housemade limoncello. Serving as host will be Dr. Sean Martin of the Western Reserve Historical Society, who will lend some historic insights to the festivities. Live music comes by way of Honeybucket, a three-member “neo-folkgrass” band headed up by Fire’s bartender Brendan O’Malley. The dinner bell chimes at 6:30 p.m. Cost is $79 per person plus tax and tip. Make your reservations by phone with staffer Hilary Lyons ; check out the website for the menu.
