Tamarind Of London’s July “Wine And Dine Series”

Tamarind of London, the popular Indian restaurant located in the chic Crystal Cove Promenade in Newport Beach, has announced its July “Wine and Dine Series." Each month, the acclaimed restaurant collaborates with a featured winery and Executive Chef Shachi Mehra prepares a special 3-course prix-fixe menu. Only available Mondays-Thursdays for $50 ($30 sans wine), each course will be expertly paired with a particular wine. The featured winery in July will be the Clos Pegase, founded in 1987 and located in Napa Valley.

 

This month's prix-fixe dinner includes a first course of Tandoor Roasted Corn Salad or Reshmi Chicken Kebab; a main course of vegetarian or non-vegetarian Thali plates (a sampling of various dishes that compliment each other) served with black lentils, rice, naan & raita; and dessert selections of Mango Kulfi with nut shortbread or Homemade Meyer Lemon Ice Cream with vanilla wafer.

 

Also, Tamarind of London will hold a Meet-The-Winemaker with Clos Pegase's Richard Sowalsky on Wednesday, July 18th from 6 – 9 p.m.  Dinner is $50 per person and reservations are recommended. Call 949-715-8338 to RSVP.

 

Founded in 1983 by Jan Shrem, Clos Pegase was established with the idea of combining ancient winemaking practices with emerging technologies. He eventually created a unique wine estate with stunning fine art pieces as a backdrop and an equally distinctive style of winemaking. He began by purchasing a 50-acre vineyard in Calistoga in 1983. Later, he added more than 400 acres in the northern and southern ends of the Napa Valley.  Today, Clos Pegase turns out a great number of varietals from Chardonneys and Savignon Blancs to Syrahs, Merlots and Cabernet Savignons.

 

Sister to Tamarind restaurant in Great Britain, which has received a Michelin star for each of the past 12 years (it was the first Indian restaurant in the world to achieve this distinction), Tamarind of London is situated near Mastro’s Ocean Club and Javier’s at 7862 East Coast Hwy, Newport Beach. It is open 7 days a week for dinner and Fri-Sun for brunch/lunch. Reservations are encouraged by calling 949-715-8338; www.tamarindoflondon.com;  www.facebook.com/tamarindoflondon.
