Chestnut Hill’s Mica Joins In The Charles Dickens Festivities With A Special Dickens-Inspired Menu Available Throughout December
In case you hadn’t heard, the 200th birthday of beloved author Charles Dickens is eminent, and Philadelphia is celebrating hard-core.
Now Chef Chip Roman’s Mica in Chestnut Hill is getting into the Dickensian spirit with a special three-course Dickens-inspired dinner menu available Sunday through Thursday for just $38 per person throughout the month of December.
The menu is a great chance to not only toast to one of the literary greats, but also the holidays. The Dickens menu is as much a celebration of the holiday spirit as it is an homage to the writer.
As Roman says, “Goose is a classic holiday dish that was a staple in Bob Cratchit’s home on Christmas Eve in The Christmas Carol, so I look forward to preparing it for our guests and sharing in the excitement of the season.”
The menu includes: Day Boat Scallops with cherry cheek apples, cinnamon gastrique and Marcona almonds; Slow-Roasted Christmas Goose with quince, sugar plum and chestnuts; and “Christmas Pudding” Redone, with Manjari chocolate, gingerbread and caramelized orange.
Following the meal, stroll and shop throughout Chestnut Hill, as the town will transform itself into a festive Dickensian Victorian village, with special holiday performances and readings, extended store hours and Victorian-themed activities. More on that soon.
To make a reservation, call (267) 335-3912.
