Food and Wine weekend starts on Friday, November 12th, 2010 in Eureka Springs, AR. As many of you know, this town has some of the best restaurants in Northwest Arkansas. During this weekend many of them showcase their talents and one we would like to spotlight is the Grand Taverne Restaurant featuring Chef David Gilderson. A few years back Chef Gilderson came to the Eureka Springs and we were fortunate enough to attend one of his opening tastings at the restaurant. Having been unabashed foodies in Dallas for a number of years, we knew a class act had arrived in town.
He’s still cooking and creating and has announced his menus for Friday and Saturday nights with some outstanding dishes and wine pairings. If you can get to Eureka Springs this weekend, you surely won’t be disappointed if you make a reservation at the Grand Taverne.
I didn’t see the Food and Wine menu on their website so I’ve taken the liberty of including it here.
