High-end dining spot 701 Restaurant is sticking with a barbecue theme this July, retaining a special slate of Fourth of July-friendly fare for the remainder of the month on the open air patio.
The featured offerings include gourmet sliders with cheddar and malted onion jam, duck-based bratwurst with foie gras emulsion, a grilled stone fruit salad with ricotta, and smoked fried chicken with biscuits. A fully composed clambake — featuring clams, mussels, lobster, and shrimp, along with corn and potatoes — that was served on the actual Fourth of July, is the lone item that will not carry over to the ongoing promotion. The select dishes, which are priced from $5 to $24, will be available to those dining on the 40-seat patio during lunch and dinner.
The barbecue menu is the latest addition from executive chef Bryan Moscatello, who joined the restaurant this past May. Moscatello previously worked at other Penn Quarter establishments, including the since-shuttered Zola and Spy City Cafe.
