At November’s dinner, entitled “Anatomy of an Assassination – The Trial of the Century,” Goodman will recall the assassination of U.S. District Judge John H. Wood, Jr., the first federal judge to be assassinated in the country, and the trial that ended with the acquittal of his client, Jimmy Chagra who was accused of hiring actor Woody Harrelson’s father to murder the judge.
The Nov. 17 dinner will offer a three-course plated dinner paired with red and white wines as well as the signature Oscar Goodman Martini. The chef selected dinner menu offers a first course selection of black kale salad with toasted hazelnut and ricotta or prime filet tartare with parmesan and black truffle, a second course choice of filet mignon with Périgord sauce or Alaskan halibut with porcini mushrooms both served with seasonal sides, and a dessert sampler.
