This looked interesting enough to pass along. I've liked the Boutari wines I've tried and the meal I had at Eos.
The first wine dinner of 2010 at the Viceroy Hotel's Eos restaurant takes place on Tuesday February 2nd, featuring the incredible wines of Boutari.
The amazing menu for this dinner was created by executive chef Michael Psilakis. Chef Psilakis is only one of two greek chefs in the world to hold the most coveted Michelin star with his restaurant Anthos in New York City.
The menu for tthis fantastic dinner is as follow:
