Oyster and Wine Dinner at Spoto’s Benefits Palm Beach County Food Bank

Slurp, dine for a cause at Spoto’s Oyster Bar

You can pair oysters with Gallo wines and add your charitable side to the mix at a four-course wine dinner on Oct. 26, with Spoto’s Oyster Bar in Palm Beach Gardens.

Try dishes such as bluepoint oysters with cucumber mint gellee and a prosecco, or grilled lobster with grapefruit beurre blanc, saffron potatoes and rainbow chard with a chardonnay. All the way through dessert. Plus, for every bottle of featured wine that diners purchase, Spoto’s is donating three meals to the Palm Beach County Food Bank as part of the Kick Hunger Challenge. The dinner costs $65 per person and reservations are required.
