Nose to Tail at Russell House on Monday May 2…

I’m really looking forward to the nose to tail dinner we are hosting at Russell House on Monday, May 2.

My staff is super excited to go through the break down and fabrication of a beautiful Black Tamworth cross from Brambly Farms in Norfolk MA. Also, our resident drink master Aaron Butler is crafting some awesome drink pairings from Heaven Hills Distillery & Farnum Hills Cider will bookend the entire 90 dollar 6 course meal.

There are a few reservations left and they can be made by contacting RHT @ 617.500.5055

Here is the current status of the menu, of course it might change a bit as the season change is providing me with some last minute ideas…
