Wine Spectator magazine has recognized 212 Market Restaurant’s exceptional wine list with its Award of Excellence for the 18th year in a row. According to Wine Spectator, “The Award of Excellence recognizes restaurants whose wine lists feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style.
212 Market Owner/Manager Sally Moses commented, “It is truly an honor to represent Chattanooga for the 18th consecutive year on a listing of restaurants from around the globe that celebrate wine and food.
We were recently recognized by Travel + Leisure as the best farm to table restaurant in Tennessee; and we are best known for serving locally sourced food, but we are also committed to offering a great selection of wines at great values.”
On Friday, July 22, 212 Market will host a 5-course dinner featuring a selection of wines from two wineries in the Finger Lakes region of New York, Hermann J. Weimer Vineyard and Damiani Wine Cellars. The menu includes pairings such as wild salmon and lemongrass curry soup served with a 2013 Hermann J. Weimer Gewurtztraminer and a spiced all-natural lamb Napoleon with grilled summer vegetables and heirloom tomato confit paired with a 2011 Damiani Meritage. The complete menu is available at www.212market.com/2016/06/wine-dinner-finger-lakes-wines/
212 Market Chef/Owner Susan Moses, who recently became interested in Finger Lakes wines after tasting some of the Hermann J. Weimer offerings, said, “It had been a long time since I had tasted New York wines, and I was really impressed with the sophistication and elegance of these bottles. I could see why these wines have been so highly rated.”
Seatings for the dinner are $75 per person. For reservations, call 423 265-1212.
