We have a winner of our Trillium Swedish summer solstice dinner contest, in which we asked Cafe Society readers to answer this question: How many meals were served at last year's Sweden dinner at Trillium? Congratulations to NickCO, who came the closest with a guess of 65; the actual number is 72.
Original post: As part of its ongoing Scandinavian dinner series, Trillium, Ryan Leinonen's terrific restaurant in Ballpark, is hosting a Swedish summer solstice dinner on Wednesday, June 18. Sweden's celebration of summer, otherwise known as Midsommardagen, is "packed full of food, music and celebration, but our interpretation focuses solely on the culinary, and we promise it will be delightful," says Leinonen, who's giving one Cafe Society reader and a guest the chance to partake in the dinner festivities for free.
"The people of Sweden celebrate the longest day of the year better than anyone else, and for those of you who have never participated, it's a tasty culinary immersion into the best flavors that Scandinavia has to offer, plus they're just a ton of fun," promises Leinonen.
The dinner, which has three seatings (6 p.m., 7 p.m. or 8 p.m.), is $70 per person, plus tax and gratuity, and includes an amuse bouche and a complimentary summer cocktail, plus four courses, all of which will be paired with with wine, beer or cocktails.
