Italian Wine Dinner with Famous Master of Wine Sommelier Peter Koff – $100
Thursday, November 5 at 6:00 PM

I am very excited to announce a special Italian Food and Wine Event with one of Southern California’s greatest wine experts. I have collaborated with Master of Wine Peter Koff to create a 5 course food and wine pairing on Thursday, November 5 (at 6 PM). Peter will present each wine and discuss the region of origin, the winery, the grape and the style.

There are only 45 Masters of Wine in the United States. Achieving the designation requires years of study, a perfect palate and an elite knowledge of wines.

This is a unique opportunity to share a meal with one of the top wine experts in the world and to hear his insights on wine.

I have created a meal specially designed to go with Peter’s selections.

Since we opened, the crudo insanity dinners have been one of the most popular things we’ve done – it’s like an omakase sushi meal but with an Italian twist. And it’s like nothing you’ve ever had in the States. This format allows us to serve the best product and be as creative as we can.

We are very excited to announce our third Ultimate Crudo Insanity with all new dishes. There will be 10 courses of crudo like those served in Michelin starred restaurants in Italy. All sashimi grade fish.

The dinner will be on Wednesday, November 11 at 6:00 PM at Bello by Sandro Nardone (1200 Bison in Newport Beach).

2: Kanpachi, Salted Kiwi, Olive Oil, Hazelnut
