We just love it when a restaurant does good deeds for our community, and 4 Rivers Smokehouse is truly a restaurant with a heart.
We were honored to be invited to the Pink & Swine event on April 7, hosted by the 4 Rivers Restaurant Group in partnership with the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association and Visit Florida. With the beautiful backdrop of Goodwood Museum and Gardens, this charitable event with a cowboy theme featured gourmet foods from local restaurants paired with fine wines and craft beers from around the world.
Attendees mingled among the best chefs in Tallahassee and enjoyed an evening under the stars with the music of the Tobacco Road Band. All proceeds from the night went to benefit Florida State University’s Deadman School of Hospitality and the Tallahassee Memorial Cancer Center.
The talented chefs at this year's Pink & Swine Event represented some of Tallahassee’s favorite area restaurants, and some new places we had not yet come across.
With so many great restaurants and vendors represented, we were almost overwhelmed with all the great food we got to try. We've selected a few of our favorites to highlight here. These unique offerings really impressed us and we are looking forward to trying these restaurants out again soon.
ABC Fine Wine and Spirits and Erie Brewery were also in attendance, showcasing some of their unique refreshments.
Erie Brewing Company
New to our area is a cool brewery out of Pennsylvania which recently opened a seafood restaurant in Panacea called Mad Anthony's. The restaurant's namesake here, was a nice robust beverage, and readily available at their restaurant which we hope to check out soon.
All in all, we were blown away by the range of products and flavors now available right here in Tallahassee.
We still have a year to wait, but plan to be back for Pink & Swine 2018. If you missed it this year, not to worry, you can always check out these great restaurants anytime right here in town.
