Harvest Vine Goes Filipino for One Night

Land of Deliciousness
File this under Holy Awesome: Next Monday, October 4, Basque restaurant The Harvest Vine is going Filipino. Lumpia, adobo, lechon, halo halo, the whole nine yards. Even better: the restaurant's former chef, Joseba Jimenez de Jimenez, will be returning to cook alongside his long-time trusted kitchen partner (and current Harvest Vine chef) Joey Serquinia.

I interviewed Serquinia, who's half-Filipino, last year for Voracious, and can tell you that Filipino food is a lifelong love and obsession for him. He's worked with Jimenez on and off for the last fourteen years cooking Basque and Spanish food (including his last stint running dearly departed Txori), but Serquinia's dream has always been to open his own Filipino restaurant. It should be a great dinner. I'm especially excited about the housemade longanisa, a sweet pork sausage that's a specialty of the Pampanga province. Full menu and details after the jump.
