Blue Snapper and Local Duck – Specials March 2-3
Really exciting specials this weekend! Some locally-raised duck from the Good Shepherd Farms, and super-fresh Blue Snapper from the North Coast of Australia. This is certainly a weekend you will not want to miss out on!
I will send out the menu on Monday, but we are honored to be able to announce that our great friend Pete Perry will be coming in from Napa Valley to host a DANA wine dinner on April 24. Often I am asked about my favorite wines, and it is almost impossible to pick a favorite, but last year’s DANA Lotus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, was the single greatest wine I have ever had from the new world. It is just that good. Add to that the fact that it is harder to find than a unicorn, and you can see why I am so excited. I am going to make certain this is the finest event we ever put on. Space is limited.
