First course: Watercress pistou, scallops and guanciale paired with G.H. Mumm Cordon Rouge.
Second course: Duck-egg custard, caviar and chives paired with Nadal Grand Reserve Cava.
Third course: Maryland lump crab cakes, asparagus and aerated hollandaise paired with Chamisal Vineyards Chardonnay.
Fourth course: Braised short rib of beef, truffled pottatoes and thumbelina carrots paired with Chappellet Mountain Cuvee Red Blend.
