Lit Dish Live: Hot on Your Plate and Hot off the Press
Have you ever wondered what it’s like behind the counter at M.Judson? If so, this is the event for you. Join us on Tuesday, December 1 at noon for a little sneak peek into our bookseller conversations that we share over lunch after we read new books. Well, except you get to sit at a table and dine leisurely on amazing food instead of gulping down quick bites of take-out.
Maestro’s Bistro (our fabulous neighbors!) will serve you three delicious lunch courses and a glass of bubbly. During each course of the meal, an M.Judson bookseller will give her personal review of two new releases. There’s a different bookseller for each course, so you’ll get a variety of opinions and genres. It’s like those staff review cards everyone loves on our shelves, except live … in person … and with a delicious lunch.
After lunch, you’ll choose one of the six books discussed to take home with you. The others will be available for purchase, as will additional wine and a special literary-themed cocktail.
Here’s the menu:
First Course-Maestro Salad (artisan lettuce, croutons, radish, grape tomatoes, french feta & their signature cajun ranch dressing)
Second Course-Crispy Fried Chicken Breast with Mashed Potatoes & Green Beans
