Atwater Vineyards

mardi gras wine dinner

Saturday, February 25

No city celebrates quite like New Orleans where cocktail culture is A. Thing. (Seriously, there is a whole museum dedicated to them). Chef Tyler Bowers will pay tribute to four classics with this menu populated with dishes inspired by New Orleans' most famous cocktails. Sit back, relax, and Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler (let the good times roll). Each course will be paired with one of Atwater's delicious wines.

  • French 75: Charbroiled oyster with Cognac butter
  • Sazerac: Pasta with blackened fennel and lemony rye breadcrumbs
  • Bloody Mary: Shrimp and Andouille jambalaya  (Vegan: Plant-based sausage, no shrimp)
  • Hurricane: Passionfruit mousse with lime and pomegranate (Vegan: Passionfruit sorbet with lime and pomegranate)

Menu subject to change.
