Autumn in the air can mean only one thing: pumpkins at Pago. As regular Pago restaurant customers know, the menu is very local and very seasonal. “Apples, ski season passes, and heirloom pumpkins ... they all remind me of traditions,” says Pago owner Scott Evans. “After years of celebrating the changes in earth’s rotation, we at Pago offer you our fourth installment of Pago’s pumpkin tasting menu.” The fourth-annual Pago Pumpkin Tasting runs from Thursday, October 30th through Monday, November 5th with a three-course pumpkin tasting menu priced at $35 per person. The starter is pumpkin “tartare” with maple-braised parsnips, crème fraîche, pepitas, sage and fall spices. The entree is heirloom pumpkin & potato risotto with braised greens, pumpkin bark, Pecorino and brown butter. For dessert, there is a spiced pumpkin tart with toasted marshmallow, pumpkin caramel, graham cracker crumbs and pine nut gelato. To get your Pago pumpkin fix, call 801-532-0777 to reserve your spot.
