Minneapolis, MN, November 14, 2011 — D’Amico presents a Brilliantly British December at the Walker Art Center. Gather’s executive chef Josh Brown salutes the Walker’s unofficial “British Arrows Month” with a trio of UK-inspired dishes. Stop for lunch or on Thursday evenings in December to enjoy his new specials: ale-battered fish and chips with malt vinegar and pub sauce; smoked lamb carpaccio with black currants, rocket, and fried artichokes; and cinnamon-raisin bread pudding. These dishes are available throughout the month in addition to the regular lunch and dinner menus at Gather, where locally sourced ingredients meet globally inspired cuisine.
