On Thursday, Oct. 8, Boulevard Bistro (1414 S. Foothill Drive) will host a five-course Fall Wine Dinner, including one of my favorite guilty pleasures: Rosa Regale Brachetto.
Dinner kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with a cheese and meat plate paired with Albrecht Cremant d'Alsace NV, followed by a root-vegetable salad with sweet-basil vinaigrette and shaved Pecorino plus Archery Summit Vireton Pinot Gris 2013.
A soup course of creamy pumpkin- and butternut-squash soup with balsamic glaze and toasted pepitas is paired with Rosenblum Viognier 2012.
The main course is a choice of apple- and apricot-stuffed Cornish game hen with sweet corn puree, fig-blackberry compote, and butternut squash mash or pecan-crusted halibut with roasted tomato and garlic wild rice, plus blueberry chutney, paired with Chamisal Stainless Pinot Noir 2013.
For dessert, there's huckleberry mousse in an almond Florentine basket with fresh berries and mint. Alongside will be the luscious Rosa Regale Brachetto 2014.
The cost for the Boulevard Bistro Fall Wine Dinner is $85 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Make reservations online here
