“The Summer is a time for travel and adventure. Inspired by his own vacations to the Mediterranean, Iron Gate’s executive chef Anthony Chittum is introducing the Agriturismo Menu. This seasonal four-course menu, priced at $50 per couple, will launch on Monday, July 27 and will be available each Sunday and Monday evening to follow in both the garden patio and carriageway.

While, visiting Sardinia, Chef Chittum and his wife stayed in agriturismos, or farms that serve as restaurants and inns for visitors. Their evenings were spent over plates of fresh and flavorful food, made from the ingredients grown right there on the farm, while wine also made nearby flowed effortless amongst fast friends.

In the true spirit of the agriturismo, Chef Chittum will rotate the four-course family-style menus at Iron Gate weekly using what is fresh and local, but menus will include seasonal antipasti, pasta, seafood or meat and dessert. Sample dishes might include hen egg frittata with English pea pesto, rustic ricotta ravioli with basil and pomodoro, and slow roasted pork. A bottle of house red or white wine from Greece is available for an additional $25. The entire table must partake in the Agriturismo Menu and additional guests can be added at $25 per person.”
