We closed out summer with a culinary bang! At the end of August, Lark’s Group Executive Chef Justin Perdue was given the honor of hosting a dinner at the famed James Beard House. We were thrilled to be part of such an extraordinary event and to share a taste of each Lark restaurant - Pg + Poet, Picnic Social, and the soon-to-open Counter and The Roof - with this esteemed crowd.
Justin and his crew served up a multi-course menu that paid homage to classic New England ingredients, with dishes inspired by each restaurant. The night ended on a sweet note with the reveal of our new signature double Lark cookie. Check out the complete menu below.
