The co-executive chef chaps at ~CORTEZ~, Louis Maldonado and Seth Bowden, will be hosting a five-course tasting menu paired with wines from Tuscany through Sienna Imports/Romano Chietti. Dishes include a warmed medley of heirloom tomatoes with shaved and marinated artichokes, toasted ciabatta, Parmesan and crescenza cheese; a nest of fettuccine with ragout of veal, caramelized cauliflower and baby spinach; a duet of roasted rabbit loin and "sous vide" leg meat with rosemary, brown butter potato puree and "uvetta sultanina;" and Painted Hills farm-roasted rib eye served with salsa verde, porcini marmalade and confit of cipollini onion. Salud!
