Shock Your Palate with Petite Maison's Offal Halloween Menu
Halloween can be enjoyed by dressing up in crazy costumes, decorating your house with skulls and cobwebs, or passing out candy to the kiddos. But if you ask us, the best way to celebrate any occasion is with food. Frighten your palette in the best way possible -- eating delicacies that might freak you out a little (ok, maybe a lot). Although it's offal-ly packed with hearts, livers, and glands, Petite Maison's third annual Offal Halloween menu is not just for the culinary adventurous. Chef James Porter promises that all five courses are designed to be all treat and no trick.

Can't stomach the idea of eating innards? Petite Maison has something special in mind for you. too. Thanks to the popularity of its limited edition prix fixe menus in the past, the restaurant will now be crafting a weekly prix fixe option to offer in addition to its regular menu (which also changes seasonally -- fall items like roasted parsnip and truffle soup have just been added). Each week will bring a new three-course menu, offered for $55 per person; wine pairings are an additional $25. This week features seared sea scallops, crispy veal sweetbreads, and roasted Colorado lamb chops.
