CELEBRATE THE SUMMER SEASON WITH AN EXCLUSIVE DINNER UNDER THE STARS

I was eating a dish called legumes de saison, seasonal vegetables, and marveling that Tony Esnault too had managed to capture the essence of early summer.
Each of the vegetables had obviously been cooked separately — steamed, roasted, sautéed — and each of them tasted vibrantly of themselves, but combined into that high note of season and place. Nobody spends this amount of time on a dish merely to have a vegetarian option on their menus: The dish is nothing less than a statement of purpose.
– Jonathan Gold

This Saturday’s exclusive dinner under the stars at South Coast Plaza features a new menu, which includes Chef Tony Esnault’s noted Legumes de Saison. Their August 8th dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a showcase of Chef Esnault’s appreciation for their incredible local seasonal produce.
