What’s a picnic without a little wine in the basket? On Monday, July 23rd, L’Espalier is paying homage to an outdoor summer tradition by throwing an indoor picnic celebrating the best Picnic Wines of the West Coast. Come taste the best outdoor drinking wines from the Willamette and Sonoma Valleys while you dine on a farm-fresh menu prepared by chef Frank McClelland, with specialties straight from his garden. Dinner starts at 7:00 pm with Smoked Sturgeon in a Pea & Mint Mousse paired with Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs and ends in the best way possible: with cheese and dessert, paired with Anderson Valley Framboise Rosé Gose. Tickets to this indoor-outdoor party are $110 including all your food and drink. Scope the menu below, and call the restaurant to make your reservation at 617-262-3023. No bug spray necessary.
