Pigs and Pinot - Celebrate BBQ Month at Muse in The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland

Downtown Cleveland Restaurant Offers an Unforgettable Dining Experience

CLEVELAND, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- The culinary team of MUSE at The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland is thrilled to unveil a "Pigs & Pinot" menu in honor of BBQ Month. Throughout May, guests can indulge in this specialty three-course prix fixe dinner.

Chef de Cuisine Brandon Stevens is proud to present this robust menu to Cleveland diners. Chef Stevens is new to Cleveland as he grew up in Amory, Mississippi, and began his culinary career in South Carolina, specializing in low country cuisine. Chef Brandon competes in world class BBQ competitions and is part of a world championship BBQ team. His family even has their own BBQ rub, Betts Seasoning, which is featured on the "Pigs & Pinot" menu.

"This menu is a tribute to my heritage. It's in honor of my grandparents who I would watch cook growing up. From memories of smelling glazed pig roasting in the family's supermarket or snacking on fried pork skins while we fished together, this menu incorporates nods to them and the cuisine I grew up enjoying," says Chef Stevens.

Located in The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland, MUSE offers a casually chic dining experience featuring contemporary American cuisine inspired by simple farm-to-table ingredients cooked to perfection. Appetizing and artistic, each menu is crafted with significant attention placed on local and regional influences. Dishes draw much of their inspiration from the flavors available from a small group of specialty growers whose passion for authentic, quality ingredients matches that of the MUSE culinary team.

The ambience in MUSE is created by rich woods and highlighted local art on the walls and tables. Each piece is original, vibrant and created by a talented artist in the area. The intimate restaurant seats 60, including a bar area which features an impressive wine and spirit list.

The "Pigs & Pinot" Famer's Market Menu special is available for $40 per person or $55 per person with the pinot wine pairing, but only for the month of May.

With the recipe for inspiration, guests enjoy fine dining experiences that are genuine and representative of the flavors of Cleveland. It's an awakening of the senses. For reservations in MUSE, please call (216) 902-5255.
