It's hard to believe that the Hawthorne is already a year old. The place feels like an institution by now (of course, it doesn't hurt that it's sandwiched between Island Creek and Eastern Standard, and run by the same talented people). To celebrate, they're throwing an anniversary soiree on November 21 with menu items that highlight everything they're thankful for, including Phil Collins (of course) and local rum, with proceeds going to food-rescue organization Lovin' Spoonfuls. Sound like fun? If you want in, read on for the menu and details.
