Our First New Orleans Supper Club: A Rare Cuts Event

Tomorrow night, Mark and I will attend the very first dinner with our new supper club.  Our Beaufort supper club was truly one of my very favorite things about living in the Lowcountry.  So we thought we'd get one started here.  Since not all of the couples (there are four of us) know one another, we thought it would be fun to dine out for our first dinner so we could all get to know one another.  

While there are tons of restaurants to choose from in New Orleans, we thought it would be fun to try something different and new.  So we have scheduled a dinner for eight at Rare Cuts on Magazine Street.  Rare Cuts is a specialty meat market that has just started hosting multi-course dinners in their courtyard.

Here is more information about what we have in store.  I have listed our choices in red!

The rare cuts tasting is a private 5-course family-style dinner held in the dining room of the uptown location. The meal features various cuts and prepartions of meat, as well as a choice of house made sides.
