On November 2, 2011, Bokx 109 invited a group of bloggers and guests to enjoy a complimentary six-course meal with wine pairings at the Chef's Table.
Chef Jarrod Moiles treated us to everything from goat cheese brulee to a dish we dubbed 'inception pork' to cotton candy. The always-full wine glasses were quite literally as big as my face.
Bokx 109 (http://newtonbokx.com) is located in the Hotel Indigo in Newton, Massachusetts.
The menu for the evening:
Seared day boat scallop with house-cured pancetta, truffle, wild mushroom, baby Brussels sprout leaves, cranberry gastrique
Roasted beet timbale with goat cheese brulee, pistachio brittle, and balsamic onion jam
Lobster-stuffed Dover sole with braised Swiss chard and roasted shallot cream
Homestead farm pork tenderloin, bacon-wrapped, with house-made mostarda, pickled tomato relish, and corn cake
Braised beef short rib from Brandt Farm with fall vegetable ragout and bordelaise
Triple creme brie panna cotta with caramelized figs and spiced hazelnut praline
