Tonight: Argyll serves up six courses with Scotch
The good folks at Argyll, at 2700 East Third Avenue, know all about both gourmet food and alcohol, so you can bet that the six-course Scotch dinner that begins at 6:30 p.m. tonight will be well worth the $70 price tag. Master of Whisky Robert Sickler will walk guests through the menu and scotch pairings; here's a taste:
Roasted beet and baked pear salad with a sherry white-pepper vinaigrette, paired with Glenkinchie twelve-year (Lowlands); Blue Sky Farms fried oysters with horseradish, ginger, pickled apples and Talisker gastrique with Talisker ten-year (Isle of Skye); braised rabbit with papparadelle pasta, chanterelles, fennel, thyme and creme fraiche with Singleton twelve-year (Speyside); pan-seared duck with parsnip puree, house bacon and brussels sprouts with Oban fourteen-year (West Coast HIghlands); Lagavulin-brined and smoked lamb chop with garlic puree and glazed winter vegetables, with Lagavulin sixteen-year (Islay); and a butterscotch creme brulee with caramel corn and pine nuts, with Dalwhinnie fifteen-year (Highlands).
