Woodlands Mansion in Summerville is opening its doors for its first public dinner since closing its restaurant last year: Alums Nate Whiting (Tristan), sommelier Stephane Peltier (Accent on Wine) and pianist Tom Bailey are reuniting for Chase After a Cure, an Aug. 25 event to benefit pediatric cancer research. Tickets to the five-course dinner are $500; only 60 tickets will be sold.
“With Charleston being such a food town, we thought it was natural to create a food event,” says owner Tom Limehouse.
The experience was designed to recreate former patrons’ most cherished memories of the award-winning restaurant. Limehouse predicts diners will recognize a few of the dishes on the newly-finalized menu, which includes sea urchin panna cotta; vanilla-poached lobster; scratch-made risotto; dry-aged duck breast with foie gras and mushrooms and smoked chocolate parfait. In addition to the wine pairings, 30 wines will be poured during a social hour before dinner.
