Something rare happens in a small restaurant in Cambridge: Vincent’s turns into a steakhouse on Thursday March 31st.
The two-level cafe and dining room on the corner of Cardinal Medeiros Ave. and from Bristol Street to Kendall Square generally offer casual breakfast and lunch, as well as seasonal bistro cuisine in the evening. Sibling to the State Park Bar, it also serves classic cocktails and natural wines. The all-day restaurant is trying something new, though, with a little help from frequent purveyors Drumlin Farm and Wulf’s Fish.
For one night only, savor all the steakhouse classics at Vincent, possibly accompanied by natural wines produced in California. The five-course menu includes a seafood tower of grilled shrimp and oyster cocktail, Drumlin Farms greens and tomato jam with Vermont blue cheese and house-cured bacon, bisque of lobster, a sirloin with béarnaise and sides of green vegetables from the cream farm, sautéed Fat Moon mushrooms and a crispy hash brown and a cheesecake with candied cherries and breadcrumbs with chocolate.
The wine pairing is an add-on, but if you go, your Steakhouse Night will start with another classic of the genre: a cold, strong martini.
Tickets are $90 before drinks and are available by make a reservation between 5 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
