We started out with crisp white wines - which I'm partial to in the summertime. My favorite was probably the Provenance Sauvignon Blanc (bottle shown above), which has an interesting story! The wine makers actually gambled when planting the sauvignon blanc grapes, and did so in region known for making red wine in Rutherford, CA. The gamble paid off, and this wine is clean and citrusy (and I now instantly wish I was sipping on a glass while typing this).
We started the evening with Capital Grille's Tuna Tartare, which is a glorious tower of tuna stacked over delicious and fresh avocado, mango and Sriracha! My favorite (and from what I hear around town, everybody's favorite) Cap Grille bartender (but they're all good!), Jenny, helped match up the perfect wine from the event with this dish. We sipped a Chardonnay and the pairing was, of course, spot on.
But, on the off-chance you just REALLY don't like wine, or not feeling it on the particular day of your visit, not to worry, because Capital Grille has some of the best cocktails, bartenders and options of any restaurant in Kansas City. I'm never disappointed. And their food, well that just speaks for itself. Best in class I tell ya. And now I'm starving...
You guys have got to get there before this event is over!
Thanks for having me to taste, sip and chat all about wonderful food and unique wines, Capital Grille! We had a great girls night enjoying it all and can't wait to come back.
