NEW 3-Course “Perfectly Paired” Wine Dinners

michaelb : November 23, 2014 6:38 pm : Blog Posts, Food & Wine Pairings












This pairing has date night written all over it–as seen in Flavors Magzine.  Or perhaps you are just a winelover who demands exquisite food pairings which connect seamlessly, effortlessly, with a fine wine?  These are NOT “tuesday night what do I drink with country-fried steak sort of wines.”  The Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne sells in our restaurant for $59/bottle, the Silver Oak Alexander for $89/bottle, and the Belle Glos “Clark & Telephone” Pinot Noir for $55/bottle.  And this dinner provides for a full glass of each…all for f-o-r-t-y-n-i-n-e d-o-l-l-a-r-s!!!!!

And if your idea of a perfectly paired wine dinner is something lower budget, we still have you covered with a “moderately-priced” wine option, bringing you to $29/person.

Dinner service begins nightly at 5pm, Monday – Saturday.  Here’s the full 3-Course Menu.
