Winter Wedding Menu

A Family-Style Dinner
The Harold Pratt House, Manhattan

Our latest winter obsession—Maine shrimp fished in the coastal waters from December through May. They are so redolent of the sea, with a lovely sweetness. Toss them into a risotto for a simple, delicious first course or serve them dripping in garlic butter atop crostini.

Great winter offerings are slow-cooked lamb shanks; thick, spicy gumbos; vegetables like Brussels sprouts and broccoli rabe done Italian style with really good olive oil and pepperoncini. Favorite vegetarian dishes include our kale, wild rice and gruyère gratin or braised escarole with cannelloni beans and a rich mushroom broth. It’s a warm and cozy time of year for our spit-roasted Amish chicken or veal schnitzel stuffed with thinly sliced ham and cheese and served with a beautiful, ruby-red terrine of braised cabbage with apples and port wine.
