Everyone has all these great fall foods that are crying out to be eaten and paired with excellent wine or beer. In this case, we have another wine dinner – this time on the 24th of October. I call this one out, in particular, because of its location. There are so many of these wine dinners happening – a good number of them are on the 24th. But this is at Barresi’s.
I have a soft spot for Barresi’s. First off, it’s in Deer Park, where I grew up. But it’s more than that. Deer Park was a small place, and one of my good friends growing up was the step-daughter of Sal Barresi. That means I spent more than one night in the kitchen, waiting with my girlfriends to pick her up once she got off work at the restaurant. The kitchen of Barresi’s is where I first tried things like calamari – quite the delicacy when you’re 16 and picky.
I got excited when I saw they’re having a wine dinner, and that it’s a pretty decent price. $65/pp for 6 courses paired with Antinori Estate wines. I noticed, with a smile, that the 6th Course cheesecake is named after
my friend’s mom. Sal and Odessa no longer own Barresi’s, but it’s nice
to know that the new owners are building on the established favorites.
The courses are as follows:
1st Course: Baked brie en croute with fruit chutney
2nd Course: Roasted pumpkin spinach salad with pine nuts and crispy proscuitto curls, and vinaigrette
3rd Course: Lobster fra Diavio"
over pappardelle noodles
4th Course: Intermezzo from Madisono’s Market: Fresh seasonal sorbet
5th Course: Roasted tenderloin of beef in Barresi’s gorgonzola cream sauce with mushrooms and artichokes
6th Course: Odessa’s lemon cello cheesecake
