Palm Court Grill inside the Davenport is offering a five-course dinner, hotel and ticket package through June 23 in celebration of artist Dale Chihuly and the glass exhibit at Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, which also runs through June 23.

The Venetian-style dinner, which commemorates Chihuly’s work in Venice, Italy, also can be enjoyed separately from the hotel stay and MAC exhibit tickets.

The elegant dinner was created by executive banquet chef Adam Swedberg and is priced at $54.95 per person.

The five courses are:


Baccala Mantecato: Salt cod creamed with garlic and parsley on potato glass with pickled radish and Tobiko (flying fish roe)

Wine pairing: Bortolomiol Prosecco, Veneto, Italy, glass ($8) and 2 oz. ($2.50)

This amuse bouche, which is a dish meant to be eaten in one bite and excite and prepare the palate for dinner, is an inventive and delightful creation by Swedberg.


Sea Scallop and Squid Ink Fettuccini: Squid ink fettuccini tossed in a lemon butter reduction topped with sautéed scallop with Tobiko, brown butter dust and lemon pearls

Wine pairing: 2016 Planeta La Segreta Il Bianco, Sicily, Italy, glass ($7.25) and 2 ounces ($2.50)

In a very fine fine-dining experience, the perfectly prepared and delicate sautéed sea scallop atop a flavorful squid ink fettuccini is the standout of the Venetian culinary meal.


Italian Sunset: Lemon sorbet in huckleberry syrup with a champagne float

This Sunset is a sweet and citrusy palate cleanser that perfectly splits the antipasto and primo courses and secondo and dolce tastings.


Chicken Saltimbocca Roulade in Marsala: Chicken roulade with gruyere, prosciutto and sage served with Risi e Bisi (Italian rice and peas), a Marsala Beurre Blanc (butter-based sauce) and parmesan crisp

Wine pairing: 2016 G.D. Vajra Langhe Rosso, Piedmont, Italy, glass ($8.25) and 2 ounces ($3)

Chicken can be a generic entrée, but this preparation is hearty, with an inspired presentation.


Glass Egg: A sugar glass filled with lemon mousse and Italian meringue and topped with candied kiwi

Wine pairing: 2016 Francesco Intorcia “Heritage” Grillo, Sicily, Italy, glass ($9.25) and 2 ounces ($3.25)

This dessert is the crystal-clear nod to Chihuly, a beautiful, crown-shaped re-creation of his glass pieces.

Two wines by the bottle – the 2016 Abbazia di Novacella, Alto Adige, Italy, Pinot Noir and 2017 Germano Ettor Langhe, Piedmont, Italy, Chardonnay – also are available for the dinner at an additional cost of $51 and $42, respectively.
