Goldbirds And Roosterburger Collaboration To Benefit Hartford Food System

Newington's @goldburgers, @cockadoodlenews collaborate for @HTFDFoodSys benefit

Newington neighbors Rooster Company and GoldBurgers collaborate to offer a special a la carte menu Feb. 24 from 5 to 10 p.m., for a benefit called "Goldbirds & Roosterburger."

The menu, served that night at Rooster Company, features small plates like chicken burger sliders with pate and egg yolk, Goldburger "Wellington," goat cheese risotto balls with beet ketchup, fried cheese curds with cherry peppers and GoldBurgers sauce, beer-braised beef pie with caramelized pickled root vegetables and an "06111" craft cocktail with Wild Turkey, egg white, lemon and red wine. Items are priced around $4 to $9.

Proceeds from the benefit will be donated to Hartford Food System, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting hunger and improving nutrition in the city. Local farms and produce will be featured.

Rooster Company is located at 1076 Main St. in Newington. Information: 860-573-3969,
