Wine Dinner at Brandywine Prime

Michael Majewski, Sommelier, General Manager and Partner at Brandywine Prime, and I have been cooking up plans for our next wine dinner since not long after our last event, back in September of last year. Now that Brandywine Prime's new chef, Daniel Marcantuno, is on board and fully established in his new kitchen, we figured it was high time to bring the food to the table. Formerly Chef de Cuisine at Philadelphia's Brasserie Perrier, Chef Marcantuno has put together what sounds like a fantastic menu. I'm looking forward to it myself.

Dinner will be served on Friday, June 6, 2008 – that's one week from today. The opening reception begins at 6:30 PM. The menu, along with the wine pairings I've selected, appear below. Cost for the evening's festivities is an obscenely reasonable $75, including tax and gratuity. Reservations can be made online or by phone at (610) 388-8088.
