December is upon us which means two weeks from today Rancho Patel Pizzeria pops at Harry’s in the Design District. Chef de cuisine Niven Patel of Michael’s Genuine is pulling out all the stops for his dinner including featuring his backyard harvest for this menu, which we’re sharing first now here. One look at @chefniven’s Instagram feed, and it’s clearer than a misty Homestead farm morning that the freshest, and likely first locally-sourced Indian meal you’ve probably ever had is in store.
“It’s going to be awesome. I am so pumped!” says Niven. “When we cook at home we don’t really think of it this way, but a fresh approach to Indian food is kind of a game changer. It’s perfect timing. I’ll have a lot of stuff that will be ready for the dinner! We’ll be picking chard, purple pac choi, carrots, turmeric, ginger and eight ball squash, to name a few!”
Book your ticket to Rancho Patel Pizzeria now here before we sell out! Tuesday, December 15 at 7:00 p.m. Niven’s evening unfolds with welcome cocktail, passed snacks, four courses including dessert, and some Eric Larkee beverage selections to mix and match or stick with all night. Tax and gratuity, and that special brand of Niven hospitality are included for $110, with a jar of homemade ghee to take home. What holiday treat!
Responsible for the kitchen at Michael’s flagship restaurant, Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink going on 3 years, Niven is a genuine chef at heart. His approach to Rancho Patel Pizzeria is to share his uniquely fresh take on authentic Indian cuisine from his home in Homestead and family traditions.
