The Dish (3131 E. First St.) is holding its second "A Few of Our Favorite Things" wine dinner this Sunday, Sept. 19, at 6 p.m.
If you like food and wine (and who doesn't?), then I strongly recommend this event. I attended the first "Favorite Things" dinner, and it was amazing. I still have dreams about the potato chips with mussel mayonnaise.
The chips with mussel mayonnaise aren't on this Sunday's seven-course menu (each with a different wine pairing), but lots of other great goodies are, including a salt cod fritter with sauce gribiche and local micro greens, paired with the Mont Marcel Brut Reserva; veal bockwurst with potato rosti, garlic greens and a mustard demi, paired with the Marc Kreydenweiss Andlau Riesling; and rabbit rillettes, with roast mushroom and chicory salad and marjoram pesto, paired with a Ponzi Pinot Noir "Tavola."
The complete menu can be viewed on The Dish's Facebook page.
The cost is $85 all-inclusive, and there are still seats available. Call 326-0121 for reservations.
