Restaurant 1508 #1

Food, wine, conversation, music and flowers all came together as one on a beautiful spring evening.

All produce came from local farms, primarily the Path Valley Cooperative in Path Valley Pennsylvania. Salad greens and herbs were from the garden of 1508. The cardoons came from Davon Crest Farms in Trappe Maryland. The wines were flawlessly matched by Tom Kiska. Music selections arranged by DJ Dredd and flowers generously gifted by Bob Wollam. Ultimately it was the enthusiastic diners who joined us for this debut evening that made it a success.

We are looking forward to number #2 where all of 1508 has been booked for a birthday. We will announce another evening open for reservations shortly.
