BROOKINGS – Café Coteau, located in the atrium of the Children’s Museum of South Dakota in downtown Brookings, is offering a brand new global dinner series this summer.

Coteau’s Table debuted last week and has five remaining Thursday nights in June and July. The meals feature food from other parts of the world ranging from Swiss to Persian, and German to Russian. Menu items are different than the fare typically served during breakfast and lunch at the museum.

“People have been asking for unique dinner offerings,” says Café Manager Pouran Borchardt. “especially after the success of our annual Persian dinners. So, we created Coteau’s Table, an informal experience designed for everyone. We have so many different cultures in this community and I like to create a place for all.”

Each scheduled meal features a unique menu and dietary accommodations are available upon request. Café Coteau is open to the public and museum admission is not required to dine in the restaurant. Reservations for the evening Coteau’s Table meal are required and can be made by calling 605-692-6700, ext. 1.

“I’m inspired by homemade and healthy food, so creating an event like this was a lot of fun,” adds Pouran.

• Thursday, June 20: Swedish Skagen Salad with Shrimp, Dill-Saffron-Lemon Aioli, and Peas on Wheat Bread with a side of Seasonal Greens and Radish Salad
