Bolsa Mercado’s Meet & Eat

by Bev Garvin

Executive Chef Jeff Harris of Bolsa has kept pretty busy this summer. In addition to running the popular Bolsa on Davis St in Oak Cliff, each Friday Night, he’s also been hosting pop-up community-style dinners on the big table that seats 20 inside at Bolsa Mercado next door.

Last Friday evening, that long table hosted a gathering of delightful dinner company. The food and the conversation flowed as nicely as the wine pairings. Next week, and on the last Friday of every month, Chef Harris will feature a vegetarian dinner menu. And with the lovely local ingredients they source, and organic fruits and veggies at their peak of season, a vegetarian dinner at Bolsa Mercado is something even this meat eater would love. 

Each dinner is $75/person and includes five or more courses with wine pairings and gratuity included! The menu is announced the Monday before each dinner. To attend call (214) 367-9367 or email with your credit card number to reserve your seats.

 Prosciutto, goat’s cheese, local honeycomb and red grapes.

Sockeye Salmon Tartare – Avocado-fennel puree, crispy sweetbreads, and grapefruit, cucumber and jalapeño oil paired with Moinetto Prosecco NV.
