You’ve fallen in love with the Crawley sisters (yes, even Edith), and wish you could call the snarky Dowager Countess “Granny,” but do you know how to dine like an aristocrat?
Pull out your finest floor-length frock or white tie and tails (this isn’t a barbeque!) and head to Conshohocken’s Blackfish BYOB on Feb. 24 for an evening of good manners, decent conversation and elegant turn-of-the-century British dining.
Granny says, “Nothing succeeds like excess,” and she would surely be pleased by this seven-course dinner inspired by Downton Abbey, including Mrs. Patmore’s London Particular (ham and pea soup). But of course, expect the cuisine to be given a Blackfish twist by chef Chip Roman.
Blackfish patrons may remember the similar Titanic dinner last spring, which recreated the last meal of the fateful ship. This time around, diners will get a tongue-in-cheek reference to the iceberg that did in the unsinkable ship in the dessert course (floating islands with creme anglaise and raspberry coulis petit fours), as the sinking of the Titanic was featured in episode one and proved to be a turning point for the Crawley family.
Seatings start at 4:30 p.m. Reservations are required in advance and spaces are very limited. Call (610) 397-0888 to reserve your place. The dinner will cost $100 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Remembering that Blackfish is a BYOB, see the event listing for the full menu to decide what beverages you’d like to pair with your meal.
