Trummer’s on Main
Trummer’s on Main’s Petit Gourmand program is a kids' tasting menu created with the goal of offering families the opportunity to introduce younger guests to fine dining—glass cups, shiny silverware, and all—at a young age. Inspired by experiences dining with their own young sons, owners Stefan and Victoria Trummer say it’s a way for both parents to be able to enjoy a tasting menu with their kid, but also for kids to be able to get involved and eat real food. Move over nuggets; the Petit Gourmand menu has included dishes such as smoked mozzarella Fried Arancini with escabeche mayo for kid-friendly dipping and a Make Your Own Sundae with all of the usual fixins’ like Cap’n Crunch and chocolate syrup.
