Salon at Per Se Debuts Five-Course Dessert Menu

Monday, April 23, 2012 at 08:04 AM - Posted by Megan - (1) comment

Sweets lovers rejoice! It’s time to skip dinner and head straight to dessert. One of NYC’s most sensational restaurants, Thomas Keller’s Salon at Per Se, just introduced a five-course dessert-only tasting menu.

 
Some may say that the $65 pre-fixe price tag (service included) is a bit much to spend on sweets, but the succession of inventive, expertly crafted confections from one of the country’s greatest culinary teams is far from your typical desserts tasting.

The menu lineup from celebrated pastry chef Elwyn Boyles will change daily, and includes inspired dishes such as popcorn-cola with sundried raisins and buttered popcorn sherbet, poached meringue with coconut, Champagne mango and toasted coriander ice cream, and chef Keller’s signature cinnamon-sugared brioche doughnuts with silky cappuccino semifreddo. If you’re not pining for an entire sugar-filled series, the Salon also offers five à la carte desserts each night. How sweet it is.

31 Days of German Riesling

Sunday, July 3, 2011 at 10:07 AM - Posted by Megan - (1) comment

Ranging in styles from crisp and dry, smooth and sweet, and everything in between, Riesling is an exceptionally versatile wine varietal—making it a solid choice for both stand-alone sipping and pairing with foods. Consistently one of my wine go-tos, especially during warm summer months, Riesling has roots in Germany but is actually the fastest growing white wine in the US. Who knew!?

To celebrate this noble grape, the International Riesling Foundation has introduced “The 31 Days of German Riesling.” For the entire month of July, hundreds of restaurants and retailers across the country will promote German Riesling by offering food and wine pairings, by-the-glass specials, flights, in-store tastings and discounted bottles.

New Yorkers can drink up at restaurants like Ai Fiori, Craft, Eleven Madison Park, Gramercy Tavern, Per SeRiverpark and Terroir, while locals in Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC and more can join in the fun as well. Check out the full list of participating establishments here.

So raise a glass to Riesling this month and join me as I proudly shout, “Prost!” (delivered in my best attempt at a German accent, of course)
