Tavern in the Village (3901 Prairie Lane) was recently picked to be the Kansas representative for a fifty-state 'Tree to Table' campaign sponsored by the Washington State Fruit Commission to highlight the short, but sweet, Northwest cherry season (June to late August).

The cherry on the award? The Prairie Village restaurant will be featuring Rainier cherries on its menu this month, starting next Monday, July 11, National Rainier Cherry Day.

Tavern in the Village is celebrating its selection with a wine tasting event on Monday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. A tasting of Chateau Ste. Michelle wines, picked to complement the flavor of Washington cherries -- will be available for $10.

Each of the chosen restaurants -- the Missouri representative is The Shaved Duck in St. Louis -- was asked to prepare a signature dish highlighting the sweet, yellow cherries. Tavern in the Village is offering a seared duck breast ($19) topped with a pink peppercorn Rainier cherry carbernet sauce. It will be served with orzo and grilled asparagus and will be on the menu for the entire month of July.
