The National Road Heritage Corridor’s 6th Frontier Dinner is on Friday, August 26 at the Christian W. Klay Winery, just off the National Road.
This year the dinner has a tavern theme in commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the start of construction of National Road (1811).
Chef Joe Carei is preparing a “tavern style” 5 course gourmet meal. Dinner includes all the liquid refreshments you can consume! The menu was adapted from a real dinner menu served at Mt Washington Tavern during the heyday of the National Road and is light on wild game!!!
Here’s the menu:
Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese Napoleons
Artisan Cheeses with Fruit & Vegetable Crudites
Wild Game Sausage
Savory Lamb Stew
Field Green Salad and Vinegar Slaw
Spit Grilled Leg of Beef
Washington Tavern Fried Trout

Rumor has it that we will be joined by some National Road Travelers.
The evening will begin, as always, under the stars with a bonfire, music and smores!
