We recently partnered with a San Diego based 5-generation French winemaker. Laurent can help pair your menu with the right French wines which will enhance your culinary experience (prices per bottle will range between $25 and $50). Call Laurent at (858) 603-2727 for more information on some of the wines he has access to through his family in France.

Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish or eggs, may increase your risk of food-borne illness. However, steak tartare is delicious.
