Veritas Summer Dinner Series: 1.) Hemingway

As Hemingway once famously said ...  "I drink to make other people more interesting" in that spirit join us on June 4th for this event first of its kind at Veritas. We'll be transforming the environment in our  intimate tavern, creating a social gathering where guests can move around freely and mingle amongst themselves throughout the evening. Upon arrival guests should plan to spend the evening indulging, socializing and of course, imbibing. Lots of imbibing. In true Hemingway fashion the wine and cocktails will remain flowing throughout the gathering.

“Ernest Hemingway doesn’t need much of an introduction. He was the original Most Interesting Man in the world, and (in our humble opinion) one of the greatest writers in the world. . .” says bartender, Tristan Swan, when asked about the ideabehind the Hemingway theme. “. . .he also loved to eat and drink. And drink. And drink. To honor these noble pursuits, we’ve put together a collection of food, cocktails and wine we’ve gathered from some of his books like A Moveable Feast, The Sun Also Rises, Across the River and Into the Trees and others. Here’s to Papa. Enjoy.”


Ernest Hemingway was a man of simple taste, as well as an avid hunter and fisherman. He was well trained and developed a taste for food and spirits ranging from French to Spanish to, sometimes, the downright bizarre. This menu will explore his interests in a unique and tasteful way. It will take you back to a simpler time while letting you experience the modern twists you've come to know and love from Veritas.
