Wine Dinner

So one of my top fave restaurants is having one of their fab wine dinners next Thursday and this is one not to miss.

First off the restaurant is in this very swank 50's ranch house. The inside is very classy and the atmosphere is dim lighted with jazzy sounds playing. It gives off a really nice vibe.

The wine dinners are basically a 5 course dinner experience.

You start off typically with champagne and Hors D' Oeuvres

Than you go to course one that comes with a wine pairing than 2,3,4 and dessert.

They usually have a theme too. We been to a few. One Italian one, a French one and a Italian -American.

It is always a great time and usually at the end of the courses the chef comes out to greet everyone.

This is next Thursday's menu...I can't wait.

highly recommend etoile at Domaine Chandon. It truly is
one of the most beautiful restaurants in the country.
Having worked in Paris, Versailles and traveling Europe
it is reminiscent of the Châteaux’s in France in both
looks and class.
