If you're looking for a night of fine dining, drinks, and animals... then this Central New York Zoo has the event for you.

Join the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse for a night of fine dining and fun. Catering at the Zoo is preparing for their next Gourmet Dinner Series on Friday, March 25th. This month they will feature Camel Caravanseai.

If you're curious as to what the meals consist of, here's a sneak peek:

  • Course One: Pork Dumplings with Pickled Ginger.
  • Course Two: Crispy Tahdig Rice with Herb Salad.
  • Course Three: Yogurt Marinated Chicken with Baharat Dry Rub and Saffron Yogurt Sauce.
  • Course Four: Kafta Kebabs with Naan.
