This was the second edition of our wine dinner series for 26 Seats, a limited seating event hosted by City Market Bistro. Once again we partnered up with Paul Serafimoff of Breakthru Beverage Group, and old pal and work colleague of Chef Scott's from his earlier days in the industry. Being that it was the end of summer, Chef Scott designed a menu that paid homage to some of the best ingredients of the summer season. The Four Course meal kicked off with a beautiful Florida Heirloom Tomato Salad, Watermelon, Basil Gel, & Burrata, the perfect opener to set the palate for what was to follow. Summer Lobster Agnolotti, Mustard Crusted Lamb Loin, and finished with a Mascarpone Panna Cotta with Roasted Peaches, Candied Almonds, and Brown Butter Crumbles. Paul took us on a trip to South Africa, Sonoma Valley, & Hungary. The Royal Takaji, the creamy and crisp fortified pairing with the dessert was an exquisite choice to end the night. We had many returning guests that once again enjoyed the experience through and through.

We hosted our first wine pairing dinner with Paul Serafimoff from Breakthru Beverage Group, here at the restaurant. The evening was a success! We decked out our venue for our guests and showed them a different side of what our Chef Scott Krause could do. He prepared a four course meal (see photos below) and Paul did the pairing for us. In between courses the Chef would come out and explain what he prepared and Paul talked the attendees through his choices of wine. This was our first dinner event, we only put out 26 tickets for sale which was perfect. It was a communal setting, everyone had plenty of elbow room, and as the evening progressed the guests socialized and enjoyed their experience. We can't wait to plan our next one! Follow us on social media for any future details. We're bring the City to New Smyrna Beach!
