I recently wrote about the marvel that is the stone crab and all of its glory, such as heavy sustainability, deliciously sweet and dense claw meat, and it’s short fishing season which ends May 15th.

I also wrote about the hot deal that Truluck’s has on their stone crab each Monday where the claws are $79 for as many as you care to enjoy.

I checked into Truluck’s last evening and guess what? It thrilled me.  Continue reading

marissa-allegriniby Charles Duran

Truluck’s and Poggio Al Tesoro of Allegrini Estates hosted an intimate luncheon Thursday featuring wines from Tuscany’s Bolgheri region.  Until the production of Sassicaia, Bolgheri was a relatively anonymous wine producing community that focused primarily on white wines and rosés.  Prior to seating the guests enjoyed a 2014 Solosole, a crisp and mineral dense white made of 100% Vermentio grapes.  

Chef Eric Ho served some of Truluck’s classics including a chilled Shellfish Platter, Hothouse Tomato Salad, and choice of Hawaiian Ahi Tuna or Filet Mignon.  Dishes were accompanied by Poggio La Grola 2012, Poggio al Tesoro Sondraia 2011, and  Allegrini Palazzo del Torre 2013, which were served as a flight.  The grand finale was the chocolate cake paired with Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella 2012.   Continue reading
