Farmer and Frenchman just opened a new space for your party to experience off-menu dishes in a socially distant space. It’s called The Wine Cellar and it’s just for your party to enjoy an amazing meal in a private, safe space.
Farmer & Frenchman is a popular spot for a great meal and if you’ve ever been, you know it’s great. The regular menu is filled with fan-favorite Italian dishes and their signature French Quarter specialties. However, the true dining experience is off-menu. According to owner Katy Groves Mussat, their team of chefs loves to experiment to make new creations for the winery’s wine pairing dinners held throughout the year that include multiple courses and of course, wine.
These dinners are very popular and almost always sell out. The next one set for Valentine’s Day is already sold out and it’s really no wonder. Some previous wine pairing menus included things like lobster linguini, wild mushroom gnocchi, prosciutto-wrapped veal, and for dessert, bourbon roasted peach.
If that didn’t sell you, then you should also know the event menus are seasonal and showcase locally sourced ingredients.
They plan to offer the same multiple-course meal offerings for The Wine Cellar so you don’t have to wait for the wine pairing dinners.
Imagine a room just for your party to eat and enjoy while surrounded by Farmer and Frenchman’s rarest bottles of wine. That’s The Wine Cellar.
Fans of the regular menu will have the option to order off the main menu, but they hope “that those wanting a gastronomic adventure will indulge in a custom 5-course pairing of wines with our chefs inspired menu offerings.”
When and if you go, we suggest you let them take you on an unexpected ride.
While you’re there, check out the actual room. You’ll be surrounded by wine, yes, but also The Wine Cellar is filled with local and custom made goods that were salvaged or made locally. For instance, when you go, you’ll walk through doors made by a local craftsman with salvaged pine beadboard with Churchill Downs push plates. Then inside, the wine vault used is actually originally from Owensboro Wagon Company dating back to 1883 and used until 1951.
The room can hold parties of 2 to 14 people. It’s perfect for a small, private event or a fun, delicious meal in a private, socially distant space.
If you want to reserve the Wine Cellar at Farmer and Frenchman, advanced reservations are required. There is a food and beverage minimum of $800. If you wanted to take part in the Valentine’s Day chef’s dinner, you still can – just reserve The Wine Cellar!
