People who attended our Italian wine dinner last month at the Crowne Plaza were very impressed by Executive Chef Todd Lytle and the menu! He will be on-hand for this event as well, and will prepare a delicious 4-course meal which will be paired with very beautiful wines from the Albert Bichot collection (see menu and wines below).
To complete the French experience, there will be live music during the dinner!
This event will begin with a social hour at 6:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 7 p.m
The Price is $79.00 per person including tax and gratuity.

International Cheese & Fruit Tray
Wine: Albert Bichot Bourgogne Blanc 2012 (retail price $19.99)
Wine of light yellow-green color. Simple nose with green apple and white flower accents. It also evokes subtle mineral notes. This dry white shows great freshness. It provides a soft mouth and a slightly finish.
Jonah Crab & Flounder Roulade, Lavender Buerre Blanc,Charred Lemon Drops
Wine: Albert Bichot Secret de Famille Chardonnay 2013 (retail price $25.99)
Elegant and refined aromas of tropical pineapple and melon plus toasted aromas showing oak spice and smoky touches. The palate is fresh and richly textured, with good integration of oak and fruit. It’s hard to see how a Bourgogne Blanc could be much better than this.

Wine: Albert Bichot Cremant Rose, NV (retail price $27.99)
This sparkling wine has fine, even bubbles and a beautiful pink color with salmon pink highlights. It has blackcurrant, raspberries and a touch of strawberry on the nose. These aromas continue through onto the palate along with a pleasant burst of freshness and vivacity. While perfect on its own, its friendly nature also makes it appropriate for pairing with Mediterranean and Asian cuisines. 80% Pinot Noir, 11%Gamay, and 9% Chardonnay.
