On Sunday, Jan. 31, at 4:30 p.m., the Feury brothers, Patrick (of Berwyn’s Nectar) and Terence (formerly of Striped Bass and Fork), will celebrate the full-scale renovation of Yangming with a multi-course Sunday Supper.
Their seasonal menu will draw inspiration from the culinary traditions of Scandinavia, Alsace and Indonesia and feature local artisanal cheeses from Yellow Springs Farm, chocolates from Christopher Curtin of Éclat Chocolate and custom cocktails made with locally crafted small-batch spirits from John Cooper and Herman Mihalich of Dad’s Hat Rye Whiskey.The main course, whole grilled black bass, was recently featured in an article in the December issue of Men’s Health, “Five Meals That Could Change Your Life.”
The renovation comes as a result of last summer’s code violations, which included multiple structural and sanitary code violations. Yangming was ultimately shut down as a result, and left the much-loved eatery shrouded in controversy. At the moment, it seems they’re coming out of the debacle rather strong.
“I heard about the major renovations that Michael Wei, my long-time friend and partner at Nectar, had done at Yangming. I thought a collaboration dinner with my brother Terence would be a fun way to celebrate the reopening,” explains Nectar chef/partner Patrick Feury. “We decided to invite some of our friends from the food and spirits community. It’s going to be a fun party and a great way to bring all of these wonderful artisans together.”
