Those of you who know us at CFG, know that we love food. Especially at our local gems in the North Loop. Now, did you know that other than lunch and dinner options at Borough, you can also sign up to get notified for their special event dinners?
We signed up for Borough’s Scotch Dinner and had a fabulous time learning about eating seasonally and locally. Borough sources their ingredients from local farmers where they can. As the crew explained the dishes, they also presented us with Scotch cocktails to pair with each course.
We have to note the perfectly flaky and buttery pastry that really tasted as beautiful as it looked.
The bar manager curated the following:
- Oban Distillers Edition
- Lagavulin Distiller’s Edition
- Talisker Storm
