Appetite extra: AVOG at Natural Epicurean

Posted By on Thu, Aug 28, 2014 at 8:56 AM

This week's Appetite column in the Indy features the newest Broadmoor eatery, Natural Epicurean

We'd first given this sneak peek back in June, and Tuesday night I was treated to another media invite to document a special farm-to-table dinner spotlighting the Arkansas Valley Organic Growers

Below, I'll share dish descriptions and photos of the faces behind the clean eating. As noted in my review this week, the cuisine maintains a noticeable lightness, allowing simple, fresh ingredients to do the talking. Start to finish, this one proved another delightful meal with virtually unparalleled color on the plate.
