Private Dinner at Assyrian Kitchen
Join us and celebrate Assyrian cuisine with a bounty of fall flavors with a talk by Near Eastern Languages and Civilization PhD student Joseph Hermiz.
Assyrian Kitchen Dinners are a unique opportunity to enjoy the true essence of Assyrian cuisine. Enclosed in lapis lazuli walls, accented by vibrant Assyrian art, the setting reflects ancient luxury in an elegant and uniquely warm atmosphere. The multi-course prix fixe menu is carefully curated and inspired by 6,000+ year old Assyrian recipes. Your evening will begin with an assortment of house-crafted savory dishes set out for you to enjoy upon arrival. As part of the shared group experience, our carefully choreographed dinner service begins at a set time once all of our guests have arrived. Non-alcoholic drink pairings will be offered with our multi-course dishes.
