I made fast friends with the sommelier Jean Francois Deschamps at our last wine dinner at Fin and he got us in last minute, as it was totally booked

Did I mention that he is absolutely fabulous???

Well he is…

He has the best stories and he tells them with a thick french accent

Anyway…I think he’s super cool…

and I learn so much about wine from him.  which is a miracle, because that stuff usually bores me to death.

 

our first course…

which was my favorite.

Fried local oysters with dill essence-sourdough toast-St. Andre cheese-melted leaks-paired with an NV Edmond Thery Brut Chardonnay-Burgundy
