This Thursday, October 13, we’re teaming up with Long Island’s Lenz Winery for a three-course progressive wine dinner in Williamsburg. What is a progressive dinner, you ask? It’s not about politics. Think of it as a crawl, with each course taking place at a different restaurant.
This particular crawl will start at Concord Hill, where you’ll eat pork rillettes with grilled baguette, paired with 2012 Cuvée and 2013 White Label Chardonnay. The second course will find you at Delaware & Hudson, eating rye-crusted skate schnitzel with warm German potato salad and autumn greens while sipping 2010 Old Vines Gewurztraminer and 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon. Finally, over at Brooklyn Star, you’ll dine on pan-seared smoked duck breast with dirty rice, butternut squash and plum glaze. The finishing wines there will be 2010 Old Vines Cabernet Sauvignon and 2010 Old Vines Merlot. All these dishes will feature New York ingredients.
With this particular dinner, you’ll get to know a great local winery as well as try some fabulous restaurants. There are three seatings over the course of the evening, so pick your time and get ready to enjoy.
