Daniel Boulud to Host Wine Dinner at DB Bistro Moderne

Jarrod Verbiak of db Bistro Moderne is a talented toque; his recent James Beard nomination as Rising Star Chef of the Year only serves as a prestigious confirmation of this. Dining at db Bistro, in other words, is always likely to yield a wonderful culinary experience. But it's not every day that Daniel Boulud himself is orchestrating and hosting the meal. In fact, in the forseeable future it's only one day: This coming Wednesday, March 7, when Dinner with Daniel will include four courses conjured by the master and paired with Jean-Luc Colombo wines from the Northern Rhone region.

Boulud's menu will showcase the gastronomy of his native city of Lyon. The bistro sommelier Caleb Ganzier will co-host the dinner and present wines from Daniel's good friend Jean Luc-Colombo. These include St. Peray and library vintages of the acclaimed Cornas, poured from large formats. The opportunity to try this Cornas wine is limited -- because it's a library vintage, it will have to be returned by early the following week.

But seriously, the four-course dinner will start with roasted Maine scallop, segue into a duo of California squab followed by a trio of lamb, and a chocolate "palet" for dessert. The wines will be a 2009 St. Peray; 2007 Cornas "Ruchets"; 2005 Cornas "Ruchets"; and 2001 Cornas poured from a jeroboam (the prior three wines come from a magnum).

A reception begins at 6:30 pm, followed by the dinner at 7 pm. Price is $140 per person, tax and gratuity not included. Compare this price to some of the SoBeWFF events and this seems like something of a bargain. If you're interested, RSVP to Ananda Torres (ananda.torres@mdmusa.com).
