Three Star Dining for $35

Fresh off a three-star review from the Post's Tom Sietsema, 1789 chef Nathan Beauchamp will begin offering a three-course menu for $35 July 1. The summer special will run through Sept. 13. To take advantage of the deal, go to the Web site to download the offer on or after July 1.

Currently on the summer menu are Maine diver scallops with polenta, pickled rhubarb, baby leeks and abalone mushrooms; Kirobuta pork chop with sour cherry, bacon 'clafoutis,' Swiss chard and bourbon; and the signature rack of Colorado lamb with Grafton cheddar galette, creamed spinach and natural jus.

Amanda,

Thanks for this tip! My friend and I went last night and had an amazing meal. I had the cold Yukon Gold potato soup, the diver scallops with mushrooms, polenta and rhubarb, and the vanilla and bittersweet chocolate bread pudding. All were delish - but the bread pudding was absolutely sinful. I couldn't finish it all, and actually considered asking if I could have the rest boxed up - a first for a dessert. The only downside was that they seated us next to a service station. Not fun!! And the service itself, ironically, was sloooow. But still, a great meal at an excellent price.

Thanks for the report, Michele. I may have to look into that bread pudding!
