Culinary Opus Dinner Series

This exclusive dining event of Caswell Restaurant Group debuted as New England’s most ambitious. At fifteen demi-courses with five wine pairings, our signature Culinary Opus is a one-of-a-kind private dinner party held at BRINE. One Thursday a month each Winter, we close our doors for this spectacular prix fixe wine dinner. We ask our guests to truly relax as they would at a home dinner party—leaving social media posts and cell phone use to another time…

The Culinary Opus is a unique opportunity for our top chefs from BRINE or Ceia Kitchen + Bar to shine as the menu creator and host—each invites you to enjoy their personal gastro adventure with apportioned courses that lean into the next. They often deviate from the personality of their home restaurant, showcasing their wide range of culinary talents and a new way of enjoying local ingredients. Some courses may be previews for an upcoming seasonal menu.

Proprietress + Wine Director Nancy Batista-Caswell moves throughout the dining room pouring her personal vintage complements from Newburyport’s only Wine Spectator ‘Award of Excellence’ wine list. Laughter and conversation ensues as diners who arrived as duets leave having enjoyed the company and experience of their tablemates. If you wish to order a cocktail, our bartenders will be happy to oblige.

The Culinary Opus menu is rarely revealed before the 7PM seating. With fifteen courses that are presented in the chef’s sequence, substitutions are not possible—but we guarantee you will still have a fantastic time even if you chose not to try them all.
