East Meets West at Wit & Wisdom

Superstar chef Michael Mina will be joining Wit & Wisdom's Zack Mills and Dyan Ng in the kitchen next Wednesday, March 25th, for a little battle of the coasts. That would be fun to watch, wouldn't it? A little Top Chef right in Baltimore. There's no real battle though, instead, the chefs will be preparing a five-course dinner, with each course featuring a favored ingredient of each coast.

The dinner starts at 6:30 and will feature the following dishes:

East| Chesapeake Oyster| bloody mary granita, celery
West| Hog Island Oyster| white soy & tangerine

East| Blue Crab Cake| flying dog deadrise ale braised cabbage, old bay sabayon
West| Monterey Red Abalone| lobster rouille, pickled lemon butter, afelia cress salad

East| Maryland Rockfish| chesapeake clam chowder
West| Sonoma Sea Salt-baked Pacific Halibut| artichoke & razor clam barigole, buttered cabbage fondue, salsify chips

East| Gunpowder Bison| rye berries, tuscarora root vegetables, black garlic barbcue sauce
West| Brandt Farms Beef Short Rib| spring pea puree, crunchy potato, oxtail marmalade

East| Corn| browned butter ice cream, crispy pork cracklings, old bay
West| Baba| ghirardeli chocolate, grand marnier, soft cream

$150 will get you dinner. Add $50 for optional wine pairing. And...Chef Mina is happy to sign copies of his cookbook for an additional $35.
