My girlfriends and I spent a fun evening in NYC last night at the City Winery, where we were not only treated to a unique dining experience--one in which the wine was center stage to the food--but in the physical and literal sense, Raul Malo performed for a sold-out house.
We enjoyed a City Winery Zinfandel as well as a Sauvignon Blanc and chose the chef's selection of cheese and charcutiere platters which included Petite Billy and Cabra Romero cheeses and Prosciutto di Parma and Salame Rosa. Also enjoyed were the Marinated olives, Hummus, and Babaganouj. Ok, and since it was a long evening--we arrived before 6 and stayed until almost 1AM when Raul finished his concert--we tried the Mini Sliders with Herbed Frites and a Margarita Pizza. The food, wine, and atmosphere were top notch, but Raul's performance....consistently exceeding expectations. What a talent.
