If you aren't traveling this summer, or you haven't visited a restaurant offering a special menu summing up their travels in a regional food showcase, it's time to get with the program.
First, Kingfisher launched their Summer Road Trip series, followed by Albert Hall's Taste of The Pacific Northwest dinner, but for years, Janos' has been bringing exotic culinary styles from all over the world to Tucson palates. This season, it's through the Around the Globe Summer Tour.
This leg of the journey Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails will book out of Charleston and step foot into the holy land, Jerusalem, on August 5th.
From a recent press release:
The food of Jerusalem embraces overlapping layers of religion, culture and conquest. In many recipes, the ingredients and dishes are harmonious even with many variations stemming from similar sources. Through this, a food culture has developed that accents what the people in Jerusalem have in common, not what sets them apart. For instance, the salad of za’atar and yogurt pureed with beets and served with toasted hazelnuts, goat cheese, babaganoush, roasted butternut squash, and green peas plays on a number of cross cultural flavor themes that found throughout the city.
The Jerusalem leg of Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails' is the third Around the Globe Summer tour destination, which began in Singapore, followed by Charleston.
Guests who have been keeping up with the journey are issued s Summer Passport. Gathering stamps in the passport leads to free goodies such as a free appetizer after 4 stamps, and a free entree after 8 stamps.
Here's the menu:
The menu items can be purchased individually or as a three course option.
