Out of the Blue GMRI Wine Dinner
GMRI Wine Dinner – June 12th 2014
Join us as we partner with the Gulf of Maine Research Institute for our “Out of the Blue” wine dinner on Thursday, June 12, 2014. Treat yourself to this very special dinner! Join us at our season’s final Wine Dinner highlighting the restaurant’s partnership with the Gulf of Maine Research Institute’s ‘Out of the Blue’ project. Executive Chef James Walter will feature redfish as a main course, a fish that is a deep water inhabitant of the Gulf of Maine. Redfish is sometimes referred to as Ocean Perch. It is also the feature fish for the month of June through GMRI’s Out of the Blue promotion.
The popular Wine Dinner series at Five-O, which feature Chef Walter’s Tuscan-infused cuisine accompanied by a meticulous pairing of wines, will begin in the restaurant’s lounge at 6:30 pm, with dinner served in the main dining room at 7 pm. The price of $55 per person plus tax and gratuity. We will discuss Chef Walter’s menu preparation and explain why specific wines were paired with the Redfish.
Since 2011, a team of local fishermen, restaurants and food service providers began working with the Gulf of Maine Research Institute to promote certain under-appreciated Gulf of Maine species. The Out of the Blue project seeks to increase consumer awareness of underutilized local, sustainable species at Maine’s restaurants and food service outlets.
According to Chef Walter, “Redfish is a delicate, delicious fish that is found in abundance here in the Gulf of Maine.”
Chef Walter’s annual trips to Tuscany, and Five-O’s partnership with a renowned restaurant in that region, inspire his creative cuisine and choice of fresh ingredients in every dish.
