Events

Several times a year, we host coursed dinners with a local winery, brewery, or other business, or create a themed dinner around a type of food, spirit, or cocktail. In addition, we offer special menus a few times year such as Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve. Check our Facebook page to see all of our upcoming special dinner menus or themed dinners. We also have weekly special offerings, so there is always something new to try!

It’s Tequila Time again at del Alma!

We are very fortunate to have Clayton Szczech of “Experience Tequila” (www.experiencetequila.com) returning for another Tequila dinner on Thursday, October 18th at 6:00pm! This special dining experience includes learning about Tequila and its rich history, and how to enjoy tequila as a spirit to be sipped and savored in the context of a pairing dinner. The evening will start with an informative presentation and tasting led by Clayton, followed by a five course dinner featuring pairings with a selection of tequilas, both as stand-alone sippers and incorporated into cocktails created by our bar team. The menu is listed below and also on our website on the “Events” page http://delalmarestaurant.com/events/. Price is $80/person (does not include gratuity). For reservations, email Jessica at banquetdelalma@gmail.com.

“Made by Hand” Dinner
del Alma Restaurant
November 8th and 9that 6:00pm

Last November, we held the very first “Made by Hand” dinner and the response was so enthusiastic from all participants (creators and diners alike!) that we are offering a new rendition of this unique dining experience. “Made by Hand: A Collaboration of Local Artists” features the creative works of five local ceramic artists and the chefs of del Alma who have met throughout the planning process and inspired each other to craft complementary pieces and menu offerings. Courses from the menu below will be presented and served on handmade ceramic dinnerware and paired with wines from Lumos Wine Company. This synergistic pairing event will be offered two separate evenings, on Thursday, November 8th and Friday, November 9th, both at 6:00pm.

Artists Renee McKitterick, Lynda Farmer, Susan Pachuta, Ted Ernst, and Sandy Segna as well as winemakers Dai Crisp and PK McCoy from Lumos Wine Company (www.lumoswine.com), will be in attendance for these very special evenings of food, wine, and clay.

Price is $80 per person (includes wine pairings; does not include gratuity). We have limited seating, so make your reservations today! 541-753-2222 or email info@delalmarestaurant.com
