From a press release:
“Critically-acclaimed Mintwood Place (1813 Columbia Road NW) celebrating ten years in Adams Morgan and helmed by veteran Executive Chef Harper McClure has announced that beginning this Sunday, February 21st, the team will begin offering a ‘Southern Hospitality’ Sunday Supper series. The new Southern comfort food-inspired dinners will be available every Sunday during dinner hours only – 5:00PM to 8:30PM – for online orders for pickup, and for limited dine-in both on the heated patios (weather permitting) and in the indoor dining room.
The culinary brainchild of Executive Chef Harper McClure and Sous Chef Gary Cooper, this weekend warm-up experience is priced at $40 per person, serves two people, and is set to feature a rotating menu grounded in Southern-inspired comfort foods. Some menu items in the rotating series will include Crispy Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Low Country Rubbed Pork Ribs, Chicken and Dumplings, Hoppin’ John Salad, Kimchi Collards, Smashed Yams, Whipped Red Bliss Potatoes, Lemon Chess Pie, and Hummingbird Cake, to highlight a few.
“We saw an opportunity to create a unique family-style dining experience at Mintwood Place – something that could really comfort and warm up our guests during the cold winter months and as we continue to persevere through the pandemic – and what better day than Sunday to offer this”, said Executive Chef Harper McClure. “In the South, Sunday Supper is not just a meal–it’s an institution,” says Sous Chef Gary Cooper, “and at its heart is a sense of camaraderie, community, and love, which is the true essence of hospitality. My Great-Grandmother Martha Lemon owned, ran, and cooked at the Russ-Mar Inn in Gloucester, Virginia, making it one of the first black female-owned and operated bed and breakfasts in the country. She was an amazing cook and a warm and loving person and was always happy to have me as her helper in the kitchen. Now, many years later, we here at Mintwood Place are lucky enough to share with this community and this family a taste of that tradition, at a time when hospitality, warmth, and good food are needed most.”
