For the first course, chef Jason Nain will serve a brie cheese and spiced black walnut quesadilla topped with Asian pear and kiwi salsa. It will be paired with a 2015 barrel aged chardonnay.

The second course will be a pickled shrimp, fennel and watermelon rind salad, paired with the 2016 seyval blanc.

Before the third course is served, guests will have MRV sorbet, a chilled watermelon and chambourcin soup shooter topped with mint cream.

The third course is Wagyu beef sliders with a a peppadew pepper sauce, topped with crispy arugula and fried quail egg alongside pommes frits with white truffle pimiento cheese aioli. That will be paired with the 2012 sangiovese.
