Midsummer Romance

Growing up in New England mid summer was the start of a very short growing season. We were always excited to visit farm stands for local corn, tomatoes, string beans, and summer squash. It is August and Jimmy's No. 43 has on the menu:

Chilled corn soup w/chorizo
Sea scallops with artichokes, fennel, violet mustard
Porchetta tonnata- cold, sliced violet hill farms roasted pork with lemon-caper-tuna mayonnaise
Roasted shisito peppers
Farro, tomato, cucumber, preserved lemon, radichio salad

All of our vegetables, and most dairy and meat is from local farmers as well!!
