SËR Steak + Spirits, the innovative steak house atop the Hilton Anatole Hotel sends a press release of two wine-focused events, and a private email on the subject of craft beer.
First, the restaurant is hosting Napa’s Merryvale Vineyards on Thursday October 16th with none other than winery President René Schlatter presenting. A reception in the hotel’s “Gossip Bar” starts at 6:30pm with dinner at 7pm on the 27th floor at SĒR. Guests will enjoy five Merryvale wines paired with a 4-course dinner prepared by SĒR execuchef, Anthony Van Camp. Price is $149 (plus t&t).
This is the first of a series of wine dinners at SĒR which has an energetic new GM in Ryan McDonald. I suspect that they will blow the doors off with the quality and thoughtfulness of the food. Add that to the fame of Merryvale and you have an evening not to be missed.
Another of McDonald’s innovations is the “SĒR Wine Club”. Members get the benefits shown below.
Finally, after years of SĒR opting out of the craft beer boom, McDonald is adding them aggressively. Rahr & Sons Brewing Company (Fort Worth) and Saint Arnold Brewing Company (Houston) are the first two, and available this week.
