In 2017, The Factory Café introduced The Factory Café Supper Club, a new type of dinner series prepared in full by Chef Ray, our café team, and members of our local culinary community. The dinners feature multiple courses with wine and beer pairings, specialty cocktails, and a low-key, unique atmosphere. This year the café team has hosted several Supper Club dinners, each featuring a different type of cuisine.
For Valentine’s Day, guests enjoyed a romantic, Italian-style dinner complete with house-made pastas, meatballs, and tiramisu.
For March’s Ala-Mex Supper Club dinner, Chef Ray partnered with John Cartwright of Rivertown Coffee. The evening included favorite Mexican dishes with a southern spin (hello, tamales with collard greens).
April kicked off the 2018 Friends of the Café Dinner Series with Steven Satterfield and was followed by a French-inspired May Supper Club. Think escargot in herbed butter, steak with pepper sauce on a bed of Swiss chard, cheese platters, and toasted pound cake with strawberries and lemon cream—accompanied by this great playlist (below).
