There are a few seats yet unbooked for Tuesday's special dinner at Room 39, 1819 W. 39th Street, for chef-owners Ted Habiger and Andrew Sloan's celebration of Queen of the Prairie -- the newest sheep's milk cheese from Green Dirt Farm.
"It's a Basque-style cheese," said Habiger. "I tasted it last week and it blew me away."
Tomorrow's dinner, which starts at 6:30 p.m., begins with lamb's liver pate -- made with Green Dirt Farm lamb, of course -- followed by ravioli stuffed with lamb and fresh sheep's milk ricotta, and stuffed roast leg of lamb. As a finale: Queen of the Prairie cheese with crackers and fresh fruit. The dinner is priced at $55; the dinner with wine pairings is an extra $20. Call 816-753-3939 for more information or reservations.
