Rapscallion chef Nathan Tate is cooking a summer pop-up wine dinner tonight in Grapevine with Texas steaks, tomotoes, peaches, wines on the menu
What are you doing for dinner tonight? Nope. You’re going to a pop-up, last-minute wine dinner hosted by chef Nathan Tate (Boulevardier, Rapscallion). Duck confit gnocchi, char siu pork belly with Texas peaches, A Bar N wagyu steaks, local tomatoes, and chocolate with cherries for dessert. All of it paired with wines from Sloan & Williams Winery, which sources its juice from Texas and California vineyards. Are they good wines? Don’t know. Will it be good food? I’m sure of it. And at $75 per person, I think it’s a terrific deal. Pick up tickets here.
Some background on Sloan & Williams Winery: Their wines are sourced from certified American Viticulture Areas in Texas & California. Their taproom is located in historic downtown Grapevine, and their tasting room, built by the Masons in 1916, is one of the oldest buildings in Grapevine.
