This April, Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse, will kick off its “Tutored Tasting” wine series. Led by the restaurant’s new award-winning wine director, Jeff Carlson, this new wine series puts an approachable and fun spin on the traditional wine pairing dinner.
With a longstanding goal to “de-mystify wine” for guests, Carlson takes a more casual approach to his tastings. Each event features a different theme, with the first highlighting something we can all relate to: “Tax Relief Wine Tasting.” Continue reading

Chef David Uygur of Lucia and Yutaka Yamato of Yutaka combined their many talents on Sunday evening for the second Valentine’s dinner in as many years. The previous event took place at Lucia, so this time it was Yutaka’s turn. When asked about the inception of the event, Uygur said “We both love dining at each others’ restaurants, so it makes perfect sense”. Justin Holt of Lucia also took place in the creation and execution of the dishes.
The six-course menu was paired with wine and sake and featured a sorbet course served on an illuminated ice block while all the lights in the restaurant were turned off.
We hope this becomes a tradition for years to come. Continue reading

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
