New Meetup: Middle Eastern Food and Wine (Yes Wine)

Announcing a new Meetup for Astoria Wine & Social!

What: Middle Eastern Food and Wine (Yes Wine)
When: Tuesday, April 19, 2011 7:00 PM

Price: $25.00 per person

Where: Gazala's
380 Columbus Avenue
New York, NY 10024

Why: There are good wines from the Middle East.

Hi Everyone:

We are going to a great BYOB restaurant in Manhattan with some of the best value Middle Eastern food in the city (technically Israeli Druze cuisine) where the owner not only flies her spices in from Israel, but she makes all her own bread and pastery. She consistently ranks in the top 3 on the Zagat and deserves the ranking. It is my favorite Middle Eastern in the city because of the freshness and care that goes into Gazala's food (ignoring the ranking of course) and she has been completely flexible and accommodating to have such a large group!

The objective of this meet up is to try wines of different prices from the same vineyard owner (guaranteeing similar care in winemaking) to demonstrate not only that there are good Middle Eastern Wines, but that price actually does matter when it comes to complexity and finish. Two will be from Massaya of Lebanon, two will be from Barkan of Israel, and one a guinea pig wine. For each of the individual brands, one will be around $15-20 and the other from $30-35. The guinea pig will be around $25-30. So there will be 5 types of red wine total and I do hope that you enjoy them.

Please note that there will be a maximum of 20 people that can attend in order to ensure that everyone has enough wine (plus hauling a case of wine around subways and taxi's is tough when you are 5'1").

Oh, and if you bring a guest and you are a woman, bring a man, and if you are a man, and bring a guest, bring a man - as you all know these events always have more women than men!
