The Boarding House Offers A Sneak Peek At Their Menu Tests

By Anthony Todd in Food on Jul 30, 2012 4:00PM

We are eagerly anticipating the opening of The Boarding House, the new restaurant that will bring together celebrity sommelier Alpana Singh with Chef Christian Gosselin, most recently at Bistronomic. We've seen some pictures of the space, which promises to be spectacular (and huge) but we'd not heard much about the food. That is, until Singh started sending out photos from their most recent menu tests.

As always, these dishes are still in development, so we don't want to hear any whining if they don't end up on the final menu in exactly this format. However, it does give an indication of what the team is working on - progressive american food with a French twist and a strong dose of heartiness. No sign of molecular fireworks, which to many will be a welcome change. We could totally devour that Kale Caesar right now.

The restaurant is scheduled to open later this summer.

The Boarding House will be located at 720 N. Wells. Photos courtesy of Alpana Singh, used with permission.
