  1. Ouch, that ain't cheap, definitely a special occasion type event. Having said that, I really enjoyed my dinner at 1540 during RW. Food was excellent, definitely on the playful side but still tasty and not over the top. Service was also top notch.

      5 course with wine pairing of Insignia and other greats from Joseph Phelps..
      Thought I'd start a post so others can share wine dinners, beer feasts, and other food and drink goings on in town.

        Wine Vault doing a 10 course Fat Tuesday meal paired with beer/wine for $35. Looking forward to Tuesday. Think they added additional days as it sold out fast.

          Looks like it's all sold out??? Bummer!!!!!! Menu sounds amazing!

            I love being on their email list. Another added advantage is getting inspiration for home cooking as they cook seasonally from local sources, for the most part.

            1. re: stevuchan

              Wonder if they have a cancellation list to be on for the 10 course meal at Wine Vault?
              That menu looks so great!
              I want to party for Carnival!


              Los Olivos for great EVO, aged Balsamic vinegars and other great stuff.

                The Vault always maintains a list in case people drop off. Give them a call. I heard their Mardi Gras dinners were killer.
