In 1992, we didn't realize that our new friend, Paul Hobbs, would go on to become one of the most important winemakers in the world, but he did.
If you don't know Paul, you should. His wines from California and Argentina and now New York and France are extraordinary. Paul is one of the most sought-after winemakers on three continents. He's one of the smartest guys in the business and we are proud to say that we have been supporters and friends since he and we started our businesses at roughly the same time. We were the first restaurant on the East Coast to serve Paul's wine and we remain the only venue where Paul hosts a dinner every year. This is the greatest single tasting opportunity of Hobbs wines each year. Part of the reason is that it is supplemented by our own deep collection of Hobbs wine.
January marks the beginning of our 25th year at Stage Left and it's only fitting that our first dinner should be our 26th Paul Hobbs Dinner (we hosted 2 one year).
Friday, January 27th is the date and if you would care to join us, please reserve a spot. This event will sell out.
This Year There Are Two Ways To Participate:
- The Pre-Dinner Tasting - $100, or
