A competitive end to the season
As summer sets in, we’re planning one last dinner-party with our favorite co-host, Metropolitan Seafood in Lebanon. It’s all set for Friday evening, June 27th, and it’s going to be one to remember.
With the 2014 world cup upon us, we’re throwing our very own international showdown. Let the men on the pitch decide whose futbol team is best, we’ll decide whose wine is finest.
Chef/Fishmonger Mark Drabich has planned a feast with a nod to host country Brazil, and we’re developing a patented bracket system for voting on the wines.
Wines have been selected with a narrow-ish range in price to keep things fair, and we’ve purposely left out the usual suspects (No Cali Cab, Bordeaux, Burgundy, or Tuscany). There are some fantastic hidden gems here for you to discover.
Please see the full menu and details below (retail prices for wines provided for reference only). Seating is limited and will sell out. Book your seat(s) early!
