If there’s anything better than having one chef create a special dinner featuring Moet & Chandon Champagne, it’s four chefs working together to serve a five-course meal.
That’s what 50 Ocean’s Executive Chef Thomas Op’t Holt has done for an Aug. 16 dinner, bringing in popular Chef Blake Malatesta, Chef David Schroeder from Brick & Barrel Gastro Pub and Chef Adam Brown of The Cooper.
They will serve five courses paired with what they’re calling the Magical Mystery Tour of Moet & Chandon: the 2009 Moet Grand Vintage Rose, 2009 Moet Grand Vintage, Moet Nectar Imperial Rose and Moet Ice Imperial. Cost is $165 (excluding tax/gratuity) and dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. Seating is limited; reservations required.
