Enjoy the Food and Wine of Portugal
From the venue:
Nick’s Westside is opening a new chapter in its international wine dinner series with an event pairing the food and wines of Portugal.
Chef Nick Leahy has created a five course tasting menu complemented by Portugal’s unique wines, Ports, and Maderias.
The dinner begins with a Bacalhau Fritter & Caldo Verde Duo, paired with Casa De Mouraz Encruzado Dao, a white, tropical, balanced wine.
The second course pairs pork and clams, a crispy belly with caramelized onions, sapelo clams, and sea beans, with Macanita Rose Douro, a rich and fruity rose.
The third course features grilled octopus, potato “a murro,” olive, roasted peppers, and chile oil, paired with a light and crisp Macanita White that is rich with notes of spices, dried fruit, and honey.
The fourth course, Francesinha (or “little frenchie”), is paired with Quinta Das Cerejeiras do Sanguinhal Grande Reserva, a white wine that has a toasty edge to it and is complimented by the wine’s wood and pineapple fruit flavors.
For the fifth and final course, Chef Nick has created Pastel de Nata, a traditional egg custard tart with kumquat and cocoa nib. This course is paired with Bin 27 Port, cacao-infused cashew milk, and candied cacao.
The Portugal Food and Wine dinner is $85 per person plus tax and gratuity. Individual seatings are available. To make a reservation, call Nick’s Westside at 770-838-3501
