In the midst of their second annual “Grange within Range” dinner series, Tohono Chul Garden Bistro is delivering a “Chiles, Chocolate & Chemistry” menu from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. on Friday, October 19.
This dinner will feature flavor profiles from local purveyors within a 75-mile radius, including cocktails with Three Wells Distilling Company‘s spirits.
Much like last month’s “Crop to Kitchen” dinner, this meal is sure to draw a crowd to the bistro and 49-acre park. Next month, the ingredients will be sourced within a 50-mile radius during the “Soil to Soul” dinner.
Tickets are $75 per person, which includes tax and service. The cocktail hour begins at 5:30 p.m. and dinner at 6:30 p.m.
