More about Tasting Tuesdays...

June 20 Menu

June 27 Menu

During Tasting Tuesdays, the Botanical Gardens will open a small café inside the Botanical Gardens for a casual farm to table experience where guests can enjoy fresh imaginative small plates and creative herbaceous drinks from chef Avi Altman of Obviously Avi Catering.  Tables will be located among the tropical surroundings for guests to relax and enjoy delicious savory dishes and sweet treats.  Visitors are encouraged to grab a glass of wine or a craft beer and take a self-guided tour of the Botanical Gardens as the sun sets.  This is a great date night or an evening out to relax with family.  The food is approachable, fresh and local. 

The Botanical Gardens is extremely beautiful in the evening and organizers want to give the community an opportunity to experience that. There is a sense of peacefulness inside the Botanical Gardens after hours and giving visitors the chance to meander through the tropical exhibits with a glass of wine while enjoying delicious, fresh foods is a great way to experience the Botanical Gardens.

The Botanical Gardens is partnering with Obviously Avi Catering for Tasting Tuesdays because Avi is an extremely creative chef that is passionate about the farm to table experience.  Avi has been a partner of the Botanical Gardens for over seven years and is very thoughtful about creating an experience for visitors that incorporates the tropical surroundings, an amazing selection of locally grown food, brewed beer and crafted wines. Avi’s commitment to the Botanical Gardens, sourcing ingredients locally, and great food is infectious.  Visitors will have the opportunity to meet Avi and share in his enthusiasm at Tasting Tuesdays. 

Food and drink offerings will change weekly depending on what items are seasonally available.  Dishes, drinks, beer and wine will be priced individually and will be available from 4:00pm to 7:30pm on Tasting Tuesdays.  Tickets for Tasting Tuesdays are included in regular admission to the Botanical Gardens; $11 for adults, $10 for seniors (62+) $9 students (13+), $6 for kids 3-12, Botanical Garden Members and kids two and under are free.  Tickets are available here or inside the Botanical Gardens at the admission desk.
