In the last couple of years, one of the big trends in dining has been the uptick in restaurants growing their own kitchen gardens. Thanks to Grace Wicks and her company, Graceful Gardens which focuses on installing just this type of green sapce, Philadelphia has been something of a trailblazer in this area.
One of the first restaurants in our city to install their own rooftop herb and vegetable garden was Noble * An American Cookery. They’ve gone through several growing seasons now with their roof garden pumping out all manner of leafy green and ripe tomato. To better spotlight the growing they’ve been doing, Noble is launching a series of “Roof to Table” dinners. They’re scheduled to take place the last Thursday of the month, June through September.
These dinners include five courses garden grown or inspired ingredients. Cost is $55 per person, with an optional wine, beer and spirits pairing for an additional. $30. The first dinner is this Thursday, June 30. Subsequent dates are July 28, August 25 and September 29. Each event is limited to just ten diners, so make sure to make your reservations now by calling (215) 568-7000.
