SOHO and executive chef Joe Ahn continue to please the palate with new tapas and wine pairings. This week for flight night on Wednesday, October 13, chef Joe has prepared a pork dish in three different ways. SOHO's wine expert, Lars Snavely, has paired each pork tapas plate with an exceptional glass of wine. The following will be featured on SOHO's menu until Wednesday, October 20.
First, SOHO will serve a tapas plate of slow roasted pork shoulder and apple barbeque sauce in a cornmeal crepe. The crepe will be paired with a 2007 Murphy Goode "Liar's Dice" Zinfandel from Sonoma County, California.
Next, SOHO will serve white wine braised pork belly lettuce wraps with a fresh tomato jam. The wraps will be paired with a 2008 Spellbound Petite Sirah from Lodi, California.
Finally, SOHO will serve a tapas plate of petite pork "filet mignon" with grilled mushrooms and a smoked tomato jus. The dish will be paired with a 2006 "Fuse" from Napa Valley, California. The wine is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Syrah.
We hope you'll stop in at SOHO this week and try each of Chef Joe's tapas plates. Each plate can be paired with a glass of wine for $12. Or, try a tapas plate with a flight of wine for $18. The wine and tapas are available individually as well ($9/glass and $6 tapas). See you soon!
