Elle's Restaurant's Features Five-Course Porketarian Dinner This Weekend

We looked up "porketarian" in the dictionary and were shocked to find it's not considered a real word. That's amazing, considering that no matter what our political leanings or backgrounds, many of us consider ourselves members of the "porketarian" group.

If you're one of us porky people, you might want to check out Elle's Porketarian Dinner Series. This five-course pork-tastic dinner menu starts Thursday, August 18th and runs through Saturday, August 20th. The dinner is $55 per person, plus tax and tip and a portion of

the proceeds with benefit the Alzheimer's Association and Walk

to End Alzheimer's.

The menu starts with a trio of ham croquettes served with fig reduction.

A polenta with pork follows, served with chorizo sofrito and fried

garbanzos. Pork belly, clams and soba noodles in dashi broth is the

third course. Next comes roasted pork loin with sweet potato gnocci. The

sweet finale? Bourbon bacon glazed doughnuts with chocolate covered


 A special kick-off cocktail party will be held tomorrow, August 18th

from 7-8 p.m. Lemony "Walk-a-tinis" will be offered and representatives

from The Alzheimer's Association will be on hand to register people for

the Walk To End Alzheimer's.
