FYI, you've got plans now for Tuesday, April 26th. Why? Because that is when Harold’s Restaurant, Bar & Terrace will be hosting a wine dinner featuring Flanagan Wines. As many of you may know, Harold's is home to one of my all-time favorite dishes: crispy duck parts. After perusing the menu for this six-course dinner, I predict Chef Antoine Ware's glazed pork belly with root beer may also be joining that list.
This special wine dinner costs $125 per person plus tax and gratuity. Reservations can be made online or by calling the restaurant at 713-360-6204.
Mark your calendars, folks! Harold's in the Heights will be hosting a wine dinner featuring selections from Duchman Family Winery on Wednesday, March 2nd at 6:30pm.
Based in Driftwood, Texas, Duchman Family Winery has received numerous accolades for their wine and this dinner presents a terrific opportunity to sample a spectrum of their varietals.
Also, there will be pork ribs. And chocolate cake. And, I hope, then even more pork ribs.
