Left Bank Brasserie Menlo Park to Host Beaujolais Nouveau Celebration
Left Bank Brasserie Menlo Park will be celebrating Beaujolais Nouveau, the “first wine” of the harvest season, on Thursday, November 16 featuring Georges Dubœuf, Beaujolais Nouveau 2017 by the glass ($9.00), carafe ($27.00) and bottle ($36.00), as well as a tasting flight of four Beaujolais wines, plus a seasonally inspired three-course prix fixe menu ($39.00). Prix fixe menu items will also be available a la carte, for lunch and dinner, in addition to all regular a la carte offerings. From 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. there will be a splash table with complimentary wine tastings of the Nouveau and from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. there will be live music.
The prix fixe menu will be comprised of Saucisson Sec, cured sausage, house pickled vegetables and Beaujolais whole grain mustard; Bœuf Bourguignon, 24-hour Beaujolais marinated beef cheeks, aromatic vegetables, bacon lardons, pearl onions and mushrooms; and Gâteau à la Poire, chocolate cake filled with vanilla poached pear, caramel cream and a Beaujolais reduction.
Beaujolais Nouveau is a traditional French holiday celebrated on the third Thursday of November every year to herald the release of Beaujolais Nouveau wine. Made from the Gamay grape, the wine is similar to a light bodied Pinot Noir and has fresh, fruity flavors that pair well with autumn dishes.
