Cafémantic to Host Autumn Game and Wine Dinner



Winter Caplanson, photoCafémantic proprietor Andrew Gütt presents an autumn game dinner on Thursday December 5, 2013 at his restaurant in Willimantic’s downtown. The dinner will feature wines by Michel Chapoutier, of the Rhône region in France. The inspiration for the dinner stems from Gütt’s experiences growing up in rural Marlborough hunting with his father. Gütt would help his father dress deer and pheasants and assist his mother who would prepare the fruits of the fall game hunts served at family dinners.

Cafémantic’s game dinner will be prepared by Chef Jonathan Hudak. Hudak, formerly chef du cuisine of Grants Restaurant in West Hartford, has designed a six course tasting menu featuring: stuffed quail with pear, forest mushroom and apple wood bacon; hand rolled potato gnocchi with rabbit ragout and black truffle butter; herb roasted squab with cabbage, apple and Syrah glaze; roasted breast of duck with cassoulet of cranberry beans, cotechino and autumn vegetables; roasted saddle venison with celery root, oats, and huckleberry venison jus. The dinner will conclude with a tasting of autumn desserts.

Each course is paired with a wine by Michel Chapoutier and includes Belleruche Rouge, La Ciboise Luberon Rouge, Gigondas, Ciboise Luberon Rouge, Croze Hermitage “Petite Ruche”, Chateauneuf Du Pape “La Bernadine” and Chapoutier Banyuls.

Service begins 6:30PM and reservations are required. Tickets are $88 and can be purchased online at or by calling 860.423.4243. Limited seating. Cafemantic is located at 948 Main Street in
