First ever Native Sun Night on the Town at Restaurant Orsay, 2/6/2014

Restaurant Orsay

Thursday night kicked off our very first Night on the Town at the highly acclaimed Jacksonville venue ~ Restaurant Orsay on Park Street.

The Native Sun Night on the Town series aims to introduce our customer base to venues that demonstrate quality, responsibility, and a commitment to our local food community. Each Night on the Town event will invite customers to enjoy local food and drink at a restaurant, bar, brewery, coffee shop, or other venue that shares our passion for clean foods and beverages.

Last night’s menu featured a four course tasting menu, each with a wine pairing, created by executive chef Brian. Fresh flavors from locally sourced ingredients blended perfectly with the ambiance of our private dining room. Chef Brian discussed the evolution of the gluten free items on the menu, and Native Sun Owner, Aaron Gottlieb briefly reviewed the importance of creating relationships with your local restaurants in order to help them accommodate special dietary requirements. The remainder of the night was spent noshing on great food, enjoying cocktails and socializing. We are looking forward to our next outing and hope that if you are in the area you will join us!
