Make pink your drink with CAFÉ ROUGE on Thursday August 11th for the restaurant’s 10th Annual Think Pink all-rosé dinner. Starting at 5:30pm, the once-yearly event will feature a selection of 10 rosés from Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant, each available by the glass for pairing with an à la carte menu of special summer dishes.
Expect quite a few meat-focused specials, items suitable for pescatarians, and a smattering of vegetarian starters as well. The menu includes oysters on the half shell; roasted beef marrow ($7); grilled Monterey Bay sardines stuffed with gypsy peppers, garlic, and onions ($10); confit tuna and heirloom tomatoes with bagna cauda ($12); and socca—chickpea pancakes with Niçoise olive tapenade ($9). Specials include classic bouillabaisse ($25); Tres Sabores sautéed and braised guinea hen with wheat berries, French plums, and escarole ($23), grilled McCormack Ranch goat with zucchini, eggplant, and onion tarte Tatin ($24); Llano Seco pork leg and sage sausage with fresh shell beans and zante grapes ($22); and dry-aged Piedmontese rib-eye steak with marrow butter and French fries ($34).
