Chef John Tesar’s Knife, located inside The Highland Dallas (5300 E. Mockingbird Lane), will team up with Pinot Noir producer Siduri Wines to present an exclusive five-course dinner paired with various selections from the Siduri portfolio, set for Tuesday, Feb. 24 at 6pm.
Tesar will prepare five courses of his signature cuisine, which recently garnered a nod from Esquire’s “Best New Restaurants,” to bring out the flavors and aromas of the wines. Sommelier Sabrina Snodderley, who has twice earned The Dallas Morning News’ best “Wine Experiences,” has expertly paired each of Tesar’s courses with a Siduri wine selection. The special host of the evening will be Siduri winemaker and Texas native Adam Lee, who will lead guests through each wine and course pairing and educate on winemaking techniques and practices.
The dinner is priced at $115 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Reservations are required by contacting Knife at (214) 443-9339.
