Leap Day Local Distillery Dinner at Quince

Four Courses Paired with FEW Spirits 

Wednesday, February 29
6:30 p.m.

$75 per person

Quince will hold an extra special dinner on this year’s extra day, Leap Day. On Wednesday, February 29, the Evanston restaurant will welcome FEW Spirits, the neighboring, small-batch distillery for a four course dinner. Executive Chef Andy Motto’s cuisine will be paired with FEW’s hand-crafted whiskey, gin, rye and bourbon (menu outlined below).

Originally founded as a dry community, Evanston was home to many influential advocates for Prohibition who effectively kept the city free of alcohol for more than one hundred years. Though the city legalized drinking in the late Nineties, it took the perseverance of FEW’s Master Distiller, Paul Hletko, to reverse the antiquated liquor laws. With roots going back to some of Europe’s fabled brewing families, Paul and FEW Spirits have marked the end of Evanston’s Prohibition and given the city its very own craft distillery, the first licensed distillery in town.

The event takes place at 6:30 p.m. and the fee to attend the dinner is $75, tax and gratuity excluded. Please call Quince at 847-570-8400 for reservations.
