FoodWire: Vin de Set, Eleven Eleven Mississippi Honor Julia Child


You know who we don't hear about much these days? Julia Child. Sister restaurants Vin de Set (2017 Chouteau Avenue; website) and Eleven Eleven Mississippi (1111 Mississippi; website) are looking to change that. This Saturday, August 15, both restaurants are hosting a special dinner featuring the five ingredients that Child said she would want as part of her last meal.  What are those five magic ingredients? Find out (plus more on Julia-honoring menus) after the jump...

The magic ingredients are caviar, oysters, foie gras, pan-roasted duck and black-tar heroin poached pear.

If you can't get enough Julia Child, Vin de Set is preparing three-course dinner menus drawn from her cookbooks this Thursday, August 13, and the following two Thursdays, August 20 and 27. The dinners are $25 per person, tax and tip not included.
