Beaujolais Dinner at 13.5% on November 20

Share the News


It’s that time again – Beaujolais Nouveau is almost here and 13.5% Wine Bar is having a dinner to celebrate!

First, I have to say that I think that 13.5% is one of the most underrated restaurants in town. Maybe because it’s a wine bar, maybe they don’t promote themselves too much, maybe it’s at the far end of the Avenue in Hampden…whatever the reason, I think a lot of people don’t give Chef Kate Erwin her due. The cheese selections are always interesting and delicious, the wine, beer and cocktails are creative and the menu always features seasonal dishes, so it changes often. Chef Kate made me love roasted cauliflower – it’s one of my very favorite things now!

Chef is preparing a lovely Beaujolais dinner on Thursday, November 2o. Reserve your seats now…it will sell out. The cost is $49.00 per person for six courses, $78.00 with wine pairings. Here is the menu:

Truffled Miataki Bisque

butter poached snails, chive oil

Don’t miss: Every Saturday from 3:00-5:00pm, 13.5% hosts a wine and cheese tasting. For just $25, guests are able to try 8 cheeses, and 16 wines (a red and white paired with each cheese.) Not only is this a deal, but you’ll also learn a lot. Highly recommend…
