The Girl & the Fig has launched a new series of PopUp Dinners at their satellite dining room and catering kitchen, Suite D in Sonoma.

The dinner includes antipasti and four courses, including an entree of House-made Sausages, Umbrian Lentils, Bloomsdale Spinach Ricotta Gnocchi and Roasted Winter Squash and Root Vegetables with Salsa Verde.
