  • Wine Pairing and Tasting Menu

    $250.00 per person

    Jun 6 - Oct 10, 2024
    Ever wondered how much a dash, drizzle or pinch may be and how much is too much? Explore these questions and other culinary quandaries with Chef Eliza on Thursdays, from 11:00 to 2:30. Chef Eliza will demonstrate 12 dishes and Sommelier Sophie will pour 10 wines, harmonizing or juxtaposing the cuisine. Recipes feature summer flavors and lesser known ingredients. Learn from Luke the art of wine pairing and dive into the regions and varietals of wine. Take with you all of the recipes, a full tummy and a bevy of new friends. Feel free to request a date for a class that fits your schedule. Most of our classes are held on Thursdays but we are open to private classes any day of the week.

    Well appointed dining room with charming decor. The new manager, Sophie, took excellent care of us and made it a wonderful experience. Kudos to the chef and kitchen staff for a lovely menu and perfectly cooked meal. Our favorite was ending the meal with their Tres Leches dessert. The ancho chili in the chocolate sauce was a standout ❤️

    The food at 221 South Oak was incredible. We were very happy to find a complete vegetarian menu in addition to the omnivore options. The staff was wonderful, and the service could not have been better.

    The vegetarian menu was amazing! So creative and well executed! The Vegan Camembert was the best vegan cheese I’ve had anywhere. The service could not be improved. This is a must!
