The Tam once again provided a holiday feast filled with special menus and Dickens-style entertainment. The legendary Dickens Dinner experience just wrapped up its 33rd year. The three-hour experience books only 60 people per performance, so you don't feel crowded while enjoying the live, interactive dinner theatre that features an acting troupe performing a consolidation of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."
To go along with the show, the Tam's Executive Chef offered the following menu items:
Holiday salad with mixed market greens, candied walnuts, blue cheese, cranberry vinaigrette.
Roasted Prime Ribs of Beef 6oz. cut, mashed potatoes, creamed spinach, Yorkshire pudding, horseradish;
English-Style Goose mashed potatoes, traditional stuffing, sautéed vegetables, sage gravy;
Pan Roasted Scottish Salmon parsnip puree, fennel, kale, pearl onions, pomegranate seeds;
Sticky Toffee Pudding
Maple Old Fashion
Elijah Craig, Whistle Pig bourbon barrel maple syrup, black walnut bitters
Highland Park, Cynar, cherry herring, orange bitters
Irish whisky, amaro, Lillet blanc
Applejack, chamomile liquor, demerra, bitters
gin, Cynar, sweet vermouth
Tam O'Shanter General Manager John Lindquist says the Dickens Dinner is like "travelling through time," and he’s right. It's a truly unique experience in a city that sometimes seems to be bursting at the seams with uniqueness. L.A. as a Victorian holiday wonderland? Please, suh, may I have anuthah?
By the way, Scotch lovers may want to look at Tam O'Shanter's unique "Scotch Passport," which gives "explorers" access to one of the most extensive Scotch collections in the U.S.
