Wine lovers, rejoice: Big Fish Grill on the Riverfront’s Wine Club Pairing Dinner returns on Wednesday, Jan. 31. The restaurant’s wine connoisseurs have selected a variety of wines to complement chef Matt Petfield’s unique menu. Each course is packed with fresh ingredients, and paired with a different wine.
This month, proceeds from the dinner will benefit Grass Roots Rescue, an all-volunteer nonprofit that saves dogs, cats and other animals at risk in shelters and within the community.
The menu will include:
- Virginia oysters, three ways: cornmeal-dusted, deep-fried and wrapped in applewood-smoked bacon, and sautéed over brioche crouton; paired with A by Acacia Unoaked Chardonnay
- Poached Chesapeake Bay striped bass served with pancetta, fennel julienne, giant white beans and court-bouillon; paired with Hess Shirtail Ranches Sauvignon Blanc
- Dijon-and-herb-crusted roast pork tenderloin served with yukon gold puree, glazed golden beets and madeira cream; paired with Storypoint Pinot Noir
- Crème brûlée served with traditional vanilla custard, burnt turbinado sugar and fresh berries; paired with Barton & Guestier Sauternes
Dinner is $60 per person (gratuity is included). Space is limited; for reservations, contact Robert Cantu at 302-652-3474 or Robert@bigfishgrill.com.
