On April 15, you can raise a glass – and a fork – to the wines of Spain when chef Nicholas Lucchesi will stage a Spanish wine dinner at Upper Crust Cafe in Garden City.
The evening begins with a glass of Champagne. Then, four Spanish wines will be paired with each of four courses: a classic green soup, followed by griddled prawns marinated with smoky Spanish paprika over arugula salad with Manchego cheese and hazelnuts. The main course will be bacon-wrapped turkey thighs over chimichurri risotto; a classic Spanish flan finishes the meal.
A speaker will be on hand to discuss the wines served.
The cost is $75 a person, including tax and tip.
