Christmas Eve, Eve Dinner

December 23, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Join us at Plum Southern Kitchen & Bar on Saturday, December 23, for a three-course prix fixe menu with delicious wine pairings.

You’ll start with an amuse bouche of black eyed pea panisse, paired with toum, chili, and pomegranate seeds. If you’re an oyster lover, plan to add 6 oysters with champagne apple mignonette and house-fermented hot sauce for an extra $15. We promise, they’re worth it!

For your first course, you’ll choose from:
– Roasted delicata squash and golden beets with mint & lime yogurt, chili-toasted pepita, and apricot sorghum chutney
– Cioppino fisherman’s stew with mussels, shrimp, grouper, Calvander cheese, green onion, and cheese crisp
– Persian gnocchi with toasted pecan, pecan oil, collard green pesto, bacon cream, and shaved speck

For your Entree Course, choose from:
– Scallops served atop Miss Vicki’s squash purée, garnished with goat cheese, lemon, savory granola, and a sprig of parsley
– Smoked leg of lamb in braised lamb jus served with creamed leeks, crispy leeks, trumpet mushrooms, fingerling potato
– Cedar-braised red beans, blistered honey- and juniper-glazed cabbage, pickled beech mushrooms, crispy beans, and corn cakes

And for dessert:
– Vegan chocolate cake with chocolate sorbet, chocolate silk, and orange
– Eggnog spice cake, with custard, brandy, and marshmallow

PLUS: Wine pairings, beer pairings or non-alcoholic cocktail pairings with each course – leave us a note with your preference when you purchase tickets.

This event is ticketed but does not have a set start time; you can choose to begin your meal anytime between 5:30-9 PM. We hope you’ll join us! Wishing you a very happy holiday season from all of us at Plum.
