Natural Wine Dinner at the Good King Tavern

good-king-tavern-back-banquette-400The Good King Tavern is back with a second Jardins de Provence wine dinner on Wednesday, May 20th. And the news gets better as the price is dropping from $95 to $65. Granted, the dinner will be a bit less grandiose; four wines, paired by a plate (amuse, opener, entree, dessert), but good food and drink on a Wednesday night is always appreciated.

The Jardins de Provence showcases natural French wines paired with chef Paul Lyons’ cooking. This month Sean Faeth of Artisan’s Cellar and Chloe Grigri of the Good King will be pouring and talking wines.

The dinner will be held at 7:30 pm along the back banquette at a single long table. Reserve your space now.

Two Bells for the Good King Tavern

lights-good-king-tavern-400Craig LaBan finds that the Good King Tavern does a heck of a job channeling Southern France, even if chef Paul Lyons might be better served by honing his menu than expanding it with specials.

“Eggplant “3 ways,” though, was my favorite, a multi-technique display that didn’t forget to showcase the ingredient. Baby eggplants were tenderly cooked sous-vide before a finishing pan char. Pickled cubes of eggplant added tangy little bursts. And a silky “eggplant caviar” puree at the base of this colorful medley (which also crunched with shaved raw sunchokes and purple rounds of watermelon radish) had a Mediterranean richness and a sneaky prickle of spicy heat.”
