Arcadia Farm Dinner Featuring a Preview of Tony Chittum's Iron Gate: Sunday, May 19th


Join us for dinner in the field at Arcadia Farm on May 19th, 2013 from 4-8pm. Award-winning chef Tony Chittum will be preparing a multi-course menu highlighting the best seasonal Mid-Atlantic ingredients – some of them harvested from our farm that morning – with his signature Mediterranean preparations. First course and cocktails will be served during the pre-dinner farm stroll with Arcadia Farm Director Stephen Corrigan.
The price of dinner is $120 and includes wine pairings, tax, and gratuity. All proceeds benefit the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture.

About Iron Gate:
Guests of the Arcadia Spring Farm Dinner will experience an advance taste of Iron Gate, the landmark restaurant Tony Chittum will revitalize and reopen later this year in Dupont Circle. Before its recent hiatus, it was the oldest continuously operating restaurant in Washington, DC, having first opened its doors in 1923.  The Iron Gate restaurant will encompass three distinct areas: a sixty-foot-long archway that forms the entry to the space and will also serve as a dining and bar area; an intimate indoor space with a large fireplace located in what was originally a stable in the 1800s; and a large courtyard overhung by grapevines and a century-old wisteria vine.

About the Chef:
Chef Chittum, who has earned accolades at Alexandria's Vermilion and DC's Notte Bianche, has earned a reputation not only for his cooking but for his commitment to sourcing the very best locally grown and produced products from an ever expanding network of farmers, fishermen, and artisans.  At the Iron Gate, he will maintain this commitment to the best of the region as he reinterprets the classic cooking traditions and techniques of Southern Italy and Greece, eschewing imported products in favor of local alternatives whenever possible.
