Look for the new date announcement:
Brandon Cain will leave his kitchen at Saw's and walk across the street to Avondale Bricks Gallery to bring a unique variation of his soulfood/seafood/countrycooking haute cuisine to the Weekly Gallery Dinner series. Each course will be paired with a beer from his next door neighbor, the Avondale Brewery.
Avondale Bricks Gallery is currently housing a museum-quality collection of Cuban art by artists at MOMA in New York, the Tate Modern in London, and even the Birmingham Museum of Art in Birmingham, Alabama. Local artist Palo Pallas also has works on display. It creates quite an ambience for the Saw's Soul Kitchen / Avondale Brewery Dinner.
Brandon's creative juices are still flowing, but he is planning three hearty dishes to go with Saison and other selections from the Avondale Brewery (next door to Saw's and across the street from avondale Bricks Gallery). Get ready for a taste of local beer with Saw's-style blackened steak tartare--a dish you won't find served in the popular new restaurant--shrimp and grits, and a braised pork belly dish invented for the occasion. Brandon will finish it off with a chocolate-cayenne crème brulée and Vanillaphant Porter from Avondale Brewery.
This is part of a series of Weekly Dinners sponsored by the Birmingham Weekly, including Sephira's Soul Food on October 25 and Weekly Wine Dinner with George Reis of Ocean on November 15. Speaking of which, Brandon Cain was executive chef for George Reis at Ocean before coming to Avondale to open Saw's. Come to both dinners and compare the results.
