Going off script at Galatoire’s

Posted By on Thu, Jul 25, 2013 at 9:04 AM

A second floor dining room at Galatoires.

The menu at Galatoire’s Restaurant is famous — and celebrated — for hardly ever changing. But the periodic wine dinners held at the landmark restaurant over the years have traditionally given its chefs the chance to stretch out a bit with more contemporary dishes.

Another series of these dinners begins next week, on Wednesday, July 31, featuring the wines from New Orleans neuroscientist and winemaker Nicolas Bazan. These wines, which he makes with Oregon’s Wahle Vineyard, will be paired with a menu created for the evening by chef Michael Sichel, alongside some of Galatoire’s classic dishes.

The next edition of the series is scheduled for Aug. 28 with wines from Château de Beaucastel from France’s Rhône Valley. The series continues through October.

The dinners are held upstairs in Galatoire’s private dining rooms and begin at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $100 each and reservations are required.
