O Avocado! Mercadito's Ode To Avocado Cooking Demo/Dinner Tonight & Tuesday

O Avocado! Mercadito's Ode To Avocado Cooking Demo/Dinner Tonight & Tuesday

Hey, do you like avocados? No, we mean, really like avocados. Because as avocados come into prime time, Mercadito chef Patricio Sandoval is hosting two nights of "Ode to the Avocado" special dinners, in which he'll demo different ways to work with avocado besides slice it up and plop it down. He'll braise it, he'll smoke it (though it's hard to get it in the rolling papers, we're sure), who knows what all he'll do with it— and then you'll enjoy it in a four course meal plus dessert. It's $55 per guest; see the menu below.
