Tuesday 8/13 Celebrate National Filet Mignon Day! Also killer Burgundy Flight.
Yes, its the day you wait all year long for, National Filet Mignon Day. Well for this wonderful made-up holiday we are rolling out two of our most delicious steak lovers dishes as well as an All Premier Cru Burgundy Flight!
Bacon wrapped 6 oz Filet Mignon with garlic mashed potatoes, puree of fresh, white corn, asparagus, baby carrots and shallot butter. 27.00
Carpaccio of Filet Mignon with wild arugula, aged parmesan and lemon vinaigrette. 12.50
We put together an incredible all Premier Cru Burgundy Flight to pair with the Filet and Carpaccio. Burgundy has become increasingly expensive and we have developed a knack for digging out the reasonably priced gems. We’ll be opening these a few hours in advance to check and decant. 25.00 (should be $35 but we really want people to order it!)
To start we are pouring the 2006 Hubert Lamy St. Aubin Premier Cru En Remilly. Hubert Lamy is considered by many as the king of St. Aubin and this bottle certainly makes a good case for it. Intense minerality on this one. St. Aubin is one of the lesser known gems that adjoins the great (and exorbitantly priced) Chassagne Montrachet vineyards. This is a great chance to try some great white burgundy with a bit of age. I can’t find a fault with this bottle.
Next we will be pouring the 2010 Domaine Faively Mercurey Clos Des Myglands 1er Cru. While Mercurey does not always maintain the highest reputation, the Faiveley Clos des Myglands Monopole gives a good name to this classic region and has become a Burgundy lover’s secret.
Last but not least we will be pouring the 2009 La Pousse d’Or Santenay Clos Tavannes 1er Cru. It is such a pleasure to pour this superstar wine from Volnay. 80 years vines originally sourced from DRC. We’ll been pouring this for the past few vintages and have fallen in love with this intense wine.
We hope to see you all tonight!
