Spring Dinner May 22 and 23 at Beehive Cafe, Bristol

The menu for this spring dinner at The Beehive Cafe in Bristol arrived in our in box and sounded like a lovely night out; in Bristol with a view of the harbor, a long communal table, byob, locally sourced food, and delicious coffee from our friends at New Harvest Coffee Roasters.

Chef Eli Dunne and owner Jen Cavallaro are planning two evenings of wonderful food on May 22 and May 23 at 7pm. It works like this. Each night they will accept 20 reservations. Seating will be at one long table upstairs at The Beehive. Details are on The Beehive website, click on Events.

Charge will be $65 for 5 courses and includes tax, tip, and corkage. Since there is only one seating for the night you will have the whole evening to enjoy the sunset, eat, chat, drink and relax over coffee. The idea here is that they take their time preparing the meal and you take your time eating it. Enjoying the pleasures of the table at a nice, slow pace. What a great idea!
