It is a great year with our own New England patriots in the Super Bowl.  Come visit us at the farm or farmer's market this weekend. We have lots of good food for your Superbowl party: wings, sausages, ribs, ground beef, hot dogs. Anything you make will taste better with our pasture raised meats.

Our yearly Farm to Table Dinner last night at Chez Pascal was amazing.  The chef did an amazing job.  Everything was beautiful and fabulous.

Monday, December 12th Pat's Pastured Grazing Dinner  

This will mark our seventh Grazing Dinner with farmer Patrick McNiff of Pat's Pastured. This particular dinner highlights one of the great reasons why we love living in Rhode Island as it gives credence to that once unfamiliar phrase 'farm to table'.  

As with all our special annual dinners at Chez Pascal, each one brings a unique quality to the evening unlike any other night.       

This one starts revealing itself the minute we enter in the wee hours of the morning.  Getting ready for Pat's dinner means roasting chickens, braising meat, cooking vegetables, simmering sauces; the enticing aromas emanating from the kitchen permeate all through the restaurant, lifting our spirits with the fragrance of heartwarming food.       

The dinner unfolds into a cozy, comfort food riddled experience, creating a culinary memory for all the senses.      

We hope you join us for this once a year delicious event.  The holiday season is the perfect time to dine with friends, family, or just wonderful you!   The dinner is at Chez Pascal and the menu for the evening will be five courses, no choices, $69 per person, not including tax, gratuity or beverages.

Due to the special nature of this menu we will unfortunately not be able to accommodate certain dietary restrictions, any substitutions or changes to the menu. It will be the only menu we will be offering for the night.  

A few Menu highlights... some items may change  

* chopped chicken liver crostini with quince compote, chicory and crispy salsify

* braised pork & beef meatballs with caraway profiterole, pumpkin mostarda and vermont raclette cheese

* choucroute garnie of ~ turkey leg confit, turkey kielbasa, turkey breast, house kraute, turnip puree & dijon

* classic whole roasted cornish rock chicken with roasted root vegetables & smoked chicken jus

(We feel the best way to eat this chicken is roasted whole. We will be serving the chicken family style based on your party size. For example, one whole chicken for a party of two. Don't worry, if you don't feel comfortable, we will gladly take the chicken back into the kitchen, portion it, and serve it to you)

Let us know if you want to take the bones home for stock!

fifth course oh dessert of course  

Given the limited availability of the menu items, we will only be able to accommodate a limited amount of guests.  Reservations required. 401-421-4422. Do come and join us!  

We will be open from 5:30pm-9:00pm.
