Christmas Eve Sunday Farm-to-Table Dinner at La Cilindrada

Here's your last chance to attend a very special Farm-to-Table dinner on Christmas Eve Sunday, December 24th, sittings at 4 PM and 6:30 PM at La Cilindrada Restaurant, Roberto Crespo 3-47 (near Luis Moreno Mora). In respect for the nature of the holiday, we've chosen to make it a plated, sit-down affair.

It is very gratifying that so many of you have already signed up. Our 6:30 PM sitting is now nearly full. We have a little more flexibility at our 4 PM sitting. If you're looking for fresh, high quality, exciting and delicious all rolled up into a great (and I dare say healthy) Christmas Eve Dinner, make your reservations now, or you'll end up having to settle for tough Turkey, old vegetables and some stale dessert. Don't say I didn't warn you...

Why is this event - the place to be - on Christmas Eve? Chef Michael and his team will be using more than three dozen ingredients from Gran Roca's sustainably grown, harvested fresh, chicken, eggs, and superior heirloom varieties of fruits and vegetables, all melded together into a cornucopia of delicious textures and flavors only available to those lucky enough to attend.

We, again, choose not to serve you commercial turkeys, as antibiotics, chemicals and hormones are not in the four basic food groups. Instead, our entree will again use our delicious, pastured, moist and tender Big Chickens that our guests absolutely raved about on Thanksgiving Day. Add to that all of the other Farm-to-Table offerings from Gran Roca, and you are assured of a uniquely beautiful and delicious gourmet meal made from freshly harvested whole-foods that are actually good for you.
