Reno: Zozo's wine tasting & menu sampling in November 2009
We had dinner at Zozo's recently and picked up a flyer for a wine tasting & menu sampling on Nov. 12 & 19. It sounds like a great deal. They're going to pour four wines with four appetizer size dishes. The price is $35 pp which includes the wine, tax and tip. I checked their website which mentions this but doesn't give details for November. http://www.zozosreno.com/
I'll type out the first one to give an idea of what to expect.
Corn chowder with Ponzi pinot gris
Rock shrimp & artichoke fritta with red pepper aoli blanc and Kenwood sauvignon
Butternut squash ravioli with hazelnut butter sauce and Fess Parker pinot noir
Lollipops of lamb with Grand Marnier and lingonberry sauce and Cuckhorn Paraduxx
We've always enjoyed our meals there, not haute cuisine but good and the service has always been nice also.
I enjoy Zozo's. Their signature dish I think is the Zozo's chicken, which uses a pureed roasted red pepper as the sauce. I dunno about the wines, though. I guess the Duckhorn Paraduxx would be the most prestigious. I would have preferred they used Italian wines.
