Well the first dinner is in the books, what a great event. I don't have much to say other then I think that the food and wine pairings worked great, all the dishes came out as planned and the wines were all drinking great. Sounds like the '08 Domaine Servin 1er Cru Chablis and the Yuzu Cured Salmon and the '07 Palacious Petalos with the Hoisin Pork Belly claimed the best pairing of the night award, though the other dishes/wines seemed to have fans! The setting looked beautiful and the sold out crowd loved the intimacy. Enough rambling here is the menu and then a bunch of photo's.
