  • Niche is holding a road-trip-worthy dinner later this month.
There's another reason besides fireworks to make the trip across Interstate 70 to St. Louis. In celebration of the release of their new cookbook, Bluestem: The Cookbook, Bluestem's Colby and Megan Garrelts are collaborating on a five-course dinner with Niche's Gerard Craft (a fellow James Beard Award nominee) on Friday, January 20. You'll have to make the trip to Craft's restaurant at 1831 Sidney, but the menu looks worth the drive.

The first course is a hamachi crudo with scallions, hon shimeji and dashi vinaigrette. The second course is crispy sweetbreads with roasted radicchio, pickled apple, buttermilk and bourbon pecan molasses. The next course features a pancetta poached cod with whipped carrots in a caramelized parsnip broth. Hungry, yet?

The penultimate course is a Kansas City strip and short rib with puffed barley, Thane Palmberg kale, Mienke grits, pumpernickel and horseradish, while the dessert course is a graham-cracker pound cake with hot-chocolate poached pears and tangerine sherbet, and petit fours.

The dinner has seatings at 6 and 8:30 p.m and is $115 per person, not including tax and gratuity. The evening includes a signed copy of the Bluestem cookbook. A wine pairing is available for an additional $35. Call Niche at 314-773-7755 to make a reservation.
