Each successive course—from King salmon crudo to plates featuring mussels, lamb sausage, halibut, agnolotti with chantarelles, and a spinach poblano soup with a walnut fondue—will show off the most classic flavors of Wormwood as designed for the late autumn season. The experience closes out with a duo of dessert experiences
Wormwood’s regular dinner menu of seasonal, French-influenced fare is also available throughout the week.
