Zahav And Le Bec: Two Wine Dinners To Plan For

winerack

 

There are two wine dinners coming up fast on the calendar that you oenophiles ought to be aware of.

The first is an Andre Mack winemaker dinner at Le Bec Fin–the third in the restaurant’s series of dinners. It’s happening tomorrow, April 17, at 6:30, and as of right now, there are about ten reservations remaining at $125 a pop. The crew at Le Bec is putting together an 8-course dinner to pair with the wines that Mack will be discussing, and the menu looks like a pretty good one. Think of Lillet Rosé poached foie gras with rhubarb, cured beets and parsnips served alongside Love Drunk Rose or Fried Chicken Napoleon en Vessi with morels a la creme, ramp waffles and preserved hen’s egg paired with Oregogne pinot noir and you’ll be in the ballpark.

And yes, you did read that right. They’re serving fried chicken and waffles at Le Bec Fin. Viva la revolution. Call the restaurant at 215-567-1000 for reservations.

But wait… What if you can’t make it tomorrow night? Then how about hitting Zahav on April 29 for their Chateau Musar dinner?

This one is six courses, paired with six wines and will run you $180 per person. The bonus? There’s more reservations still available and you have some time to plan. Michael Solomonov and his crew already have a menu prepped for this one, and it looks something like this.

      Pricey, but I’ve been to a previous LBF wine dinner at that price that was totally worth the money – same chefs cooking high-quality, very-tasty food (of which there was a ton) and plenty of wine poured. I would absolutely do it again and felt it was a good value.
