We had a chance to chat with chef Graham Dodds recently who is taking a breather after closing Wayward Sons on Greenville. Dodds is taking this time to consult and do some fun pop-up dinners which can always be an exciting way for any chef to express themselves on the plate.
We wanted you to know about another fun event coming up at Urbano Cafe on their lovely space located outside in the back of the restaurant. Graham Dodds will serve his signature farm-to-table fare as our guest chef on Monday, June 5 at 7 p.m. Below is Chef Dodds’ menu, which reflects his characteristic focus on mindfully sourced local ingredients. The special four-course dinner, which will be served on The Back Porch at Urbano – I know you love it out there – is $65 per person plus tax and gratuity. It is not a BYOB event (but we will have live music!), and beer and wine will be available for purchase. Guests will be treated to a complimentary glass of Prosecco upon arrival.
