Nick & Toni’s in East Hampton will host a special wine pairing dinner on Thursday, February 23, beginning at 6:30 PM. The “Italy: Top of the Boot” dinner will feature a five course menu crafted by Chef Michael Zuckerman and Pastry Chef Kelsey Roden, paired with Italian wines chosen by Beverage Director Chimene Macnaughton.
The cost is $150 per person, plus tax and gratuity, for the five-course dinner. Wines from the menu will be available with special event pricing pre-order directly through Jacques Franey of Domaine Franey on the night of the event.
“The inspiration for this month’s dinner came from an email exchange I’ve been having with the brilliant Friulian winemaker Giampaolo Venica,” said Macnaughton. “In talking about his latest project Dalia Maris — itself inspired by the whites of France’s Northern Rhône valley where Giampaolo recently worked several harvests — Giampaolo shared with me his passion for and commitment to the indigenous whites of his native Friuli, and reading his extolling of their terroir, and his pure joy in describing these wines. I just had to take us all there, if only for one night.”
