In a city filled with good seafood, BLACK Restaurant group still stands tall, and every November they step up for undraising initiative for National Diabetes Awareness, this year with the proceeds helping meet their $200,000 goal to build a special teaching kitchen at the Washington Nationals Diabetes Care Complex at Children’s National Medical Center.
Since we love both a good cause and a good, fresh oyster, we stopped by their 2nd event this month @ BlackSalt restaurant and seafood market (if you haven’t been-go) and ate our weight in seafood: oysters fresh and fried and barbequed and rockefeller, they were all there…
…accompanied by delicious wine varietals from around the world including Roederer Estates, Argyle, Sileni, Chehalem, Jean Marc Brocard, Peter Franus and Paul Prieur, and sugar free desserts by pastry chef Susan Wallace (the pumpkin cheesecake was the most popularly hoarded one).
If you missed it/and are sad you missed it, there is still one chance to join in the delicious philanthropic fun with Black Restaurant group. TONIGHT:
Black’s Bar & Kitchen’s Silver Oak Cellars Wine Dinner, 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.; Tickets: $195 (excluding tax). A six-course Chesapeake themed dinner will be paired with wine from Silver Oak Cellars, and their sister winery Twomey Cellars. Silver Oak is an acclaimed winery renowned for crafting extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon for over 39 years, which is located in the Napa and Alexander Valleys of California http://www.silveroak.com/. Twomey Cellars was started 11 years ago to enable the company to work with varietals other than Cabernet Sauvignon including Merlot, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc www.Twomeycellars.com.
