La Cuchara Hosts Five-Course Wine Dinner Featuring Spanish and French Wine Selections, Feb. 23

Have you visited La Cuchara yet? If you have, you know about their pintxos and Basque cuisine. If you haven’t, this wine dinner should be your siren song to this newer Clipper Mill spot.
 
On February 23 at 7 PM, La Cuchara is hosting a Bordeaux-inspired wine dinner called "Think Outside the BX." A five-course tasting menu prepared by Chef Ben Lefenfeld will be accompanied by unconventional wine pairings by La Cuchara's sommelier Greg Schwab and Advanced Sommelier Matt Carol from Washington, D.C..
 
With each course, diners will receive both the French wine pairing selected by Schwab and the Spanish wine pairing selected by Carol. Dinner is $98 per person, excluding tax and gratuity.
