For the cost of dinner out on any other night, Fitler Dining Room is sending guests eating and drinking their way through France’s fabled wine regions.
Self-described Philly wine dude Seth Biederman from The Wine Merchant will join Chef Robert Marzinsky at the restaurant on Tuesday, August 20 for Classic Wine Regions of France Dinner, a multi-course feast that will pair the restaurant’s French-leaning fare with corresponding vintages that each represent a different region.
All the wines are included with the dinner. Just 32 seats are available, so reservations are an absolute must.
The evening will begin with passed hors d’oeuvres and corresponding wines, followed by four courses and more wine.
Meanwhile, Biederman and Marzinsky will discuss each course and how the wines correspond. It all wraps with a round of cheese and petit fours, served, of course, with more wine.
The dinner, including wine, costs $125 per person. Call the restaurant at 215-7332-3331 to make a reservation.
