Honestly, I’m not sure that there will be any seats left at the time of this publication, but I’m giving it my best shot for you! (I’ll write this really quickly so you can get to the action step fast.)
Chef Amar Santana and his lovely team at The Broadway Restaurant have been putting on Wine Dinners every few weeks, each with a special menu built around a different winemaker. This Wednesday, Oct. 16th, it’s a great one – the Justin Vineyards out of Paso Robles. Tickets are $135, excluding tip and gratuity, and you can reserve yours by calling (949) 715-8234.
There (pant, pant). That was your action step. Go, call fast.
