We’re getting excited for this year’s Longest Neighborhood Table – Home Edition! With over 60 households already committed, and more joining every day, September 12, 2020 is going to be quite the night for Acts’ friends and supporters. (Psst…if you haven’t already, you can register here!)
One of the fun parts of Home Edition is looking forward to sharing a meal with family and friends. While some hosts are eager to prepare their favorite recipes, others have asked for recommendations on local caterers to help make the night memorable, and easier to prepare for.
It brings us great joy to share these Longest Table featured catering options with you! These local restaurants are also small businesses that need our support right now.
And, our Sponsor, Molson Coors has kindly created the perfect beverage pairing selections for each style of food. Thank you Molson Coors for your creativity and generous support!
Read on for catering suggestions with beverage pairings for your Longest Neighborhood Table – Home Edition.
Featured Caterers & Molson Coors Beverage Pairings
Cubanitas + Sol Cerveza
Cubanitas is Milwaukee’s first and only entirely Cuban restaurant. From plantain chips and guacamole to croquettes, empanadas, black beans and rice, and even flan for dessert, your mouth will water when you order dinner from Cubanitas.
Golden like the sun with well-balanced notes of citrus and fine malts, Sol Cerveza is the ideal pairing for summertime. Pair Sol Cerveza with your favorite Cuban dish and enjoy the balance of rich flavor and heritage finished with a crisp, refreshing lager.
Funky Fresh Spring Rolls + Crispin Pearsecco
Funky Fresh Spring Rolls are unique flavored, hand-rolled spring rolls made with fresh and local ingredients. When sold hot they are grilled NEVER deep fried to give you a healthier option to a traditionally “greasy” favorite. From buffalo chicken and kale to sweet potato and black bean, you’ll find a flavor you love with Funky Fresh!
Keep it light with Funky Fresh Spring Rolls and Crispin Hard Cider Variety Pack. This refreshing combination of salad veggies, sweet potato fries, and spring rolls pairs perfectly with the airy bubbles, pear skin aroma and crisp finish of this cider-meets-champagne combination.
Heaven’s Table BBQ + Summer Shandy
Self-taught Chef Jason Alston had a dream of learning the BBQ craft his Uncle and GrandDad were skilled at. After years of practice and testing, his restaurant, Heaven’s Table, with BBQ known as “a little piece of heaven” is a success within the Crossroads Collective.
Even with Oktoberfest cancelled this year, we can still celebrate! Leinenkugel’s Oktoberfest has rich,
toasted maltiness that pairs best with grilled and roasted dishes. Perfect for Heaven’s Table BBQ, this
smooth, clean Marzen beer will cleanse your pallet between bites and provide the perfect balance
Screaming Tuna + Blue Moon Light Sky
As a Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch partner, Screaming Tuna is committed to a menu composed of sustainably sourced seafood. If you’re into sushi, check out this menu where you’ll find both raw and cooked options, as well as vegan and gluten-free fare.
Seafood and beer? Absolutely! Blue Moon Light Sky is the perfect balance of citrus and hops to round out the rich salty-sweet flavors of Screaming Tuna Sushi Co.’s offerings of the evening. One of Blue Moon’s new releases this summer is sure to be both a crowd and palate pleaser.
Maharaja + Coors Banquet
Milwaukee’s premier Indian restaurant, and voted “Best of Milwaukee” consecutively for 19 years, Maharaja offers a menu full of both Northern and Southern Indian cuisine with freshly prepared lamb, chicken, goat, seafood, and vegetarian specialties.
A classic among beers, Coors Banquet boasts a malty sweetness ideal for rounding out roasted, fried or bold flavors. Paired with any of the Maharaja samplers, Coors Banquet’s crisp clean finish will cleanse the palate after every bite making each dish the star of the show.
Antigua + Sol Cerveza
Antigua is a Latin Inspired Kitchen, creating new and classic dishes with the flavors of Latin America. We represent our Latin culture in Milwaukee by providing exquisite dishes, made with the finest ingredients.
