Dine and wine by the sea

January 15, 2010

The Inn by the Sea has a few wine (and one beer) dinners scheduled and has released its Restaurant Week menu. The special dinners do sell out, so it’s wise to make reservations well in advance.

• Feb. 18: A Five-course Argentine Harvest Dinner paired with wines from the Andeluna cellars. Stern Greenwood, from the San Francisco Wine Exchange will describe the wines chosen. It’s worth noting that Chef Mitchell Kaldrovich was reared in Argentina, so he knows the country’s flavors. The courses:

1. South American seafood and lobster ceviche with yuca chips paired with 2007 Torrontes

2. Slow-braised chicken embanadas dumplings paired with 2004 chardonnay reserve

3. Sweetbreads Milanese style, with balsamic glaze and mushroom escabeche, paired with 2004 Malbec limited reserve

4. Entree: grilled grass-fed steak medallion with chimichurri salsa verde and smoked twice-baked potato, paired with 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon reserve

5. aalfajores com dulce de leche.

• March 11: Terredora Winery Wine Dinner

• March 25: Gritty’s Beer Dinner

Restaurant Week, March 1-10: The three-course dinner menu will offer a choice of three appetizers (cream of celery root soup, citrus marinated beets, pan-seared jumbo scallop), three entrees (handmade ricotta gnocchi, gulf of Maine lobster & cod chowder, red wine-braised beef cheeks) and two dessrets (profiteroles, carrot cake). Price will be $30.10.
