Easton Porter Group, the hospitality company behind Cannon Green in Cannonborough-Elliotborough, has announced the new direction they plan on taking with the property. Wild Common, a "tasting menu experience," will be the "re-envisioned restaurant" within Cannon Green's Conservatory. The original Cannon Green restaurant closed last August.
The restaurant is scheduled to open in March and will be helmed by Executive Chef Orlando Pagán, who will create a menu featuring "hyper-seasonal ingredients featuring bold, uncomplicated flavors displayed in artful presentations."
Diners can enjoy a glimpse behind-the-scenes from an 8-seat, interactive Chef’s Counter in front of the open format kitchen, private dining at the exclusive Chef’s Table overlooking an outdoor courtyard, or a tasting-menu experience in the newly-designed Wild Common dining room.
The tasting menu will rotate seasonally, and will have two options for each of the four courses. Tasting menu dishes include fresh Scallops with pickled strawberries, coconut, puffed tapioca, chickweed; Fois Gras Cappelletti with pastrami spice, daikon, pickled garlic flowers; and Smoked Butter Poached Swordfish with spring peas, salt-baked kohlradi, blanquette among others. Chef Pagán will accommodate vegetarians and vegans for the Tasting Menu.
Wild Common will also offer select a la carte dishes, including Dry Aged NY Strip with early spring vegetable tart and XO sauce and Chawanmushi with shiitake, preserved sea vegetables and smoked trout roe.
Guests can enjoy wine pairings with each course for an additional $45 per tasting menu. Cocktails will also be available.
The dedicated five-course Chef’s Table can seat eight to twenty people and provides the opportunity for customization.
According to a press release, the restaurant gets its name from the D.H. Lawrence poem “The Wild Common.”
Although the original restaurant has closed, Cannon Green will still operate as a dedicated events venue for celebrations like weddings, private dining, corporate events, and more.
