Surf Club has announced plans for a Winter Dinner that promises to be a culinary and cocktail experience that you will not want to miss.

The Winter Dinner, scheduled for 7 pm on January 15th, will feature five creative seasonal dishes paired with five imaginative craft cocktails.

“It’s January and there isn’t much going on, so we wanted to do something fun. I came up with some dishes that I’ve personally been into, wether eating or reading about them,” Brian Ashness, Chef at Surf Club told What’s Up Newp on Thursday. “I ran it past the team saying this is what I’d like to cook. Everyone was in to it. (Bar Manager) Alex (Brandariz) came up with some amazing cocktail pairings, equally fun and creative. And now we are off”!

“Everything is going to delicious! The menu seems eclectic but it flows nicely. Anyone who knows me knows I love noodles, and the thing I I like the most on this menu is the ramen,” Ashness continued. “It’s not traditional by any means. It’s this rich, spicy broth that you can dip the fried chicken into. It takes 18 hours to make but it’s totally worth it. It’s so good”! 

The dinner is scheduled for 7 pm on Wednesday, January 15th.

“It’s going to be a great way to spend a January Wednesday night in Newport,” Ashness concluded.
