Westchester Dining: The Cookery and Captain Lawrence Brewing Company Celebrate Valentine's Day a Week Early

Food, drink, fun and music planned for the Tasting Room at the Captain Lawrence Tasting Room in Elmsford on Feb. 8.

The Cookery (Dobbs Ferry) and Captain Lawrence Brewing Company (Elmsford) will join forces in Elmsford on Friday, Feb. 8 to present “A Lover’s Quarrel (a Pre-Valentine’s Day Soiree).”

The co-hosts promise that this event will be “a great night of digestion, liberation and flirtation” and “a fun evening for singles and couples” not willing to wait a week to celebrate Valentine's Day. The CLBC wedding band, “Monogamy’s Dilemma,” will entertain.

The dishes to be prepared by Chef David DiBari’s kitchen staff include bar-style favorites such as:

  • Wood roasted bone marrow with balsamic onions and grilled Tuscan bread
  • Crispy duck tongue with fennel salt
  • Blood red beet arancini with goat cheese
  • Duck liver parfait with grilled Tuscan bread and Amaretto gelée
  • Cookery house pickles: Kirby’s, baby beets, cauliflower, radish and Brussels sprouts
  • Raw black kale salad with boiled eggs, onions and quince vinegar
  • Crostino with fresh ricotta, truffle honey and thyme
  • Assorted cheeses with wood baked bread and truffle honey

A carving station will offer confit of veal breast and baby back ribs. A "slop" station will provide braised pork cheeks with apple mustard and braised ox tail.
Italian food favorites to be provided:

  • Pasta: Butternut squash lasagna
  • Pizza: Artisan pizza direct from The Cookery’s DoughNation wood-fired pizza truck

Beverages available will include a selection of ales plus wine and a few specialty punches. 
This event will be held at Captain Lawrence Brewing Company’s Tasting Room in Elmsford. The festivities begin at 8:30 p.m. Participants must be 21 or older.

The cost is $65 per person or $110 per couple.
