Join us this Thursday as we welcome our friends from Mad River Distillers for a night of delightful food and inspired cocktails.  Mad River will mark our fourth dinner in the series and promises to be one of our best. Our chef Chris Kleyla worked with our culinary team to create the menu below. Paired cocktails were created by our team behind the bar including Megan Freitas, Vito Lantz, and Caitlin Murphy. 

For those of you that are new to the cocktail dinner series we hold each month, allow us to take some time to explain why this is one of the coolest things to do in town. 

Each month, we partner with a local distillery to bring our guests a unique culinary and cocktail experience. We carefully select spirits, create cocktails, and pair each cocktail with a food we feel represents both Statesman and the time of the season well. 

These events are intended to be fun, educational, and certainly social. It is a unique opportunity to be able to ask the distiller how they make their spirits, allows them to tell their story and nerd out a bit. 

Some spots are still available, if you'd like to make a reservation, please call the restaurant at 401-396-5115. $65 per person. We look forward to seeing you!
