Now that the restaurant is in full swing for the season, the exciting, special events we have to offer are endless!
Coming up tomorrow is our 2nd-ever Wine Dinner, appropriately named "Taste of Spring", as it falls in the first week of May. Our first Wine Dinner was held last November, so we went with a "Harvest" theme. Tables decked with gourds and squash, rustic Fall colors, and a hearty menu accented by Fall flavors made for a great evening of wine and food.
We were pleased to partner with some local New York State food producers to add in an element of "eat local" as well. We featured food products from Yancey's Fancy, Deb's Bakery, & Harrington's Produce- all of which are Genesee County natives, plus Wine Ice Cream from Northern New York-based Mercer's. This wine dinner was such a hit, that we wanted to keep a similar format going forward for our second time around.
Our Taste of Spring Wine Dinner will highlight 5 courses, all of which are expertly-paired with their own wine. In keeping with the "Spring" theme, we chose a lighter, more delicate menu than what was served in the fall, and of course 5 new wines. We made sure not to repeat any wines for those dual-offender diners. We also, again, wanted to feature some local favorites, so we'll start off the evening with a cheese course provided by Yancey's Fancy, and finish with a delectable dessert from Buttercrumb's Bakery in Corfu.
We are suckers for a theme, so in going forward, we'd love to plan each of our wine dinners around a particular theme. And luckily, this world has a lot of different wines, so the theme possibilities are endless: NYS Wines, Italian Wines, All Reds, All Whites... and let's not stop there. We're also toying with the ideas of a Bourbon Tasting, a Craft Beer Tasting, and so on. Feel free to let us know what theme you'd like to see for our future spirits dinners!
If you don't have reservations for tomorrow night's wine dinner, there is still time and room.. albeit both are limited. Give us a call as soon as possible to make a reservation, or simply keep it in mind for this autumn when we host our next one!
