Rombauer Vineyards Wine Dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse

Thursday Feb. 28, 2019 | First Tastemaker Dinner of 2019

Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse presents its first TasteMaker Wine Dinner of 2019 featuring Rombauer Vineyards. Family-owned for three generations, Rombauer’s world-class quality and family tradition inspired our chefs to pair five of their wines with delectable courses. First course begins with pan-roasted red snapper & crispy yuca cake, then followed by a creamy potato leek soup. Third course is a New Orleans-inspired Bucatini with blackened chicken, andouille sausage and sun-dried tomatoes. Fourth course is a savory filet with garlic herb cheese gratin, served with a wonderful accompaniment of roasted brussels sprouts. Finish with a triple chocolate cheesecake! Each course paired with a Rombauer Vineyard selection. We invite you to savor every sip. Make your reservation here today.
