What with the Tribe back in town, tailgating for the Browns game, Scene's Oktoberfest taking over Public Square, the Barking Spider's 30-year anniversary/closing its doors party, and that one kid's birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese, there is no shortage of goings on in The Land this weekend.
But if you are at all curious about chef Jeremy Umansky's soon-to-open "New Jew" delicatessen, Larder, you might want to pencil in this pop-up
at 6 p.m. this Saturday night. Taking place at the BotttleHouse Brewery
in Cleveland Heights, the free event promises to shed a little more light on what Umansky has in store for future diners.
On tap will be:
Ohio CAB Navel, kraut, light amazake rye, fermented Russian dressing
Truly Wild Mushroom Reubens (vegan)
Same as above but with wild mushrooms that have been smoked and pastrami cured
Acorn Blini with Sunflower Seed Butter & Cream Fermented Wild Berries
A vegetarian play on PB&J
Shagbark Hickory Pickled Eggs & Beef Borscht Terrine
Beef trotter terrine with pickled beets. The eggs are pickled in a Shagbark hickory vinegar using a Chinese tea egg method
Truly Wild Mushrooms & Koji Barley (vegan)
"My grandmother's soup recipe as a salad," Umansky says.
All items from the sour cream and mayo to the pastrami are made from scratch.
A special small-batch mead made with local honey and foraged wild blackberries will be unveiled as well.
There's no need to secure an advance ticket; just show up.
