Here’s a taste of what’s on tap today at the Beard House.

 
Historic Lakefront Elegance, 7:00 P.M. 
Patrick Higgins, The Inns of Aurora, Aurora, NY
 

Small-town charm meets modern luxury at the historic Inns of Aurora, a storied collection of Federal-style properties overlooking the majestic Cayuga Lake. Tonight the Inn’s locavore chef Patrick Higgins comes to the Beard House for an elegant expression of late-spring bounty from the lush Finger Lakes region, serving up plates like Riesling-Pickled Scallops with Nettle Vichyssoise and Caviar; Finger Lakes Cheese Cannelloni with Mushroom Crespelle, Fiddlehead Ferns, Pea Shoots, and Preserved Tomatoes; and Spiced Lamb Sausage with Ramps, Baby Artichokes, Shiitake Mushrooms, and Jus.
