Saint Lawrence Gridiron started as a roving food truck before it traded its wheels for brick and mortar at 705 W. Bannock St. Now, owner Brian Garrett is taking advantage of the permanent location to start a new tradition called Sunday Supper Club, kicking off Oct. 5.
The event features a pre fixe menu with off-menu items that stick to the restaurant’s catch phrase: “exploring the roots of American cuisine.” The board of fare will include a couple of appetizers, a soup and salad, and an entree and dessert—with a glass of wine or beer included.
The inaugural Supper Club meal will be sourced almost entirely from Boise Farmers Market vendors. Tickets are $65, with proceeds going to Boise Farmers Market programs like Sprouts Kids Club—a weekly event that includes kids cooking classes and activities centered on food, nutrition, gardening and composting—as well as a local documentary titled To Live Local. The documentary explores sustainable agriculture practices in Idaho.
Garrett said the dinner will be far different from a normal dining experience.
“Instead of just a bunch of individual people, instead of sitting in groups of two, the whole group will be seated together,” Garrett said. “We’ve spun the idea into more of a community experience.”
Tickets can be purchased at Saint Lawrence Gridiron or at the Boise Farmers Market information booth.
