  • One Seat at a Five-Course Dinner with Wine
    Gourmet menu starting with passed hors d’oeuvres and ending with dessert; wine pairings by Ste. Michelle Winery Estates<p>

  • Folk Stories and Music
    Printed menu features short stories, folk tales, and cultural explanations tied to each course; folk music plays in the background<p>

Although it’s normally closed on Mondays, R Bistro will open for an exclusive Folk & Knife dinner that teams contemporary, locally sourced dishes with wine and a folk vibe. The menu highlights each dish’s connection to folklore, such as the warm lamb-kidney salad with oyster mushrooms and pink peppercorns, which pairs with the true story behind “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” The dinner begins with Irish cheddar croquette hors d’oeuvres and progresses through five courses, including New Orleans–style barbecue shrimp, slow-roasted wild salmon, and goat cheese with caramelized figs. A carefully selected varietal from Ste. Michelle Winery Estates accompanies each course, and the staff will chat about ingredients and wines as they serve food. Folk music by artists such as Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan will play in the background to set the mood.


####When * **Monday, June 17**
opening reception: 6:30 p.m. | seating: 7 p.m. | finish: 9 p.m.


####Where R Bistro's chefs never have a chance to get bored with their menu. That's because it changes every week to match the local ingredients currently in season, from golden beets to swiss chard to radicchio. It's a vision championed by European-trained executive chef and owner Regina Mehallick, whose dedication to rustic, contemporary dishes has earned her a long list of accolades. She's been a James Beard Best Chef: Great Lakes semifinalist four years running, and the [_Indianapolis Star_](http://gr.pn/14sJUje) hails her as "a local food icon, the standard-bearer of fresh, local and seasonal."
