Bistro 185 planning Halloween homage to HBO's 'True Blood'

Sounds fun, huh ?

Just in time for Halloween, chef Ruth Levine of Bistro 185 is planning an homage to the HBO cable series "True Blood." On Wednesday, Oct. 27, Levine's "True Blood Dinner" debuts with an entirely red menu -- dishes like Shrimp Fritters With Red Devil Aioli, a Roasted Red Beet and Pomegranate Salad, and Roasted Beef Tenderloin Medallions With Red Wine Sauce. Dessert? Red Velvet Cake With Raspberry Coulis. The menu is inspired by the cuisine of Louisiana, the setting for "True Blood."

If you happen to make reservations for the dinner, consider donating blood to the American Red Cross. Guests who do so between now and the event will receive a $25 gift certificate good for a future visit to Bistro 185.
