Wine flight with a prix fixe / tasting menu?

alanbarnes | Mar 25, 2009 09:40 PM

DW and I are spawn-free for the weekend and want to make the most of it. We snagged a good room at the Fairmont (thank you, recession pricing), so the next question is, of course, where to have dinner on Saturday night.

There is a nearly unlimited number of places I'd like to eat. So to narrow the field, I'd like to focus on places that offer a well-thought-out series of wines by the glass, specifically paired to dishes served. Maybe thee or four courses, maybe a full-blown tasting menu.

Price is an object, but not the object. DW's avoidance of MSG and its analogs makes many Asian cooking methods more challenging. Otherwise, the geographic origin of cuisine is unimportant. Places near Nob Hill get extra points. Good food (and, for this outing, well-paired wine) is paramount.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
