Wine Pairing at Fresh Salt with Joel Gott Winery

Social Media Promotion

We were finally able to attend one of the amazing dinners as part of the Cuisine Series at Saybrook Point's restaurant, Fresh Salt. We've been downright drooling over every menu that we've viewed from this series - so to finally be able to partake in this wine tasting and dinner pairing that was featuring the wines from Joel Gott was a dream come true!

The Joel Gott Winery features wines grown from the short and cooler growing season of California, Washington, and Oregon, giving a crisp and clean flavor to their wines.



As always, Fresh Salt's beautiful ambiance added to a pleasurable meal, as well as dining with friends Wendy and Greg from ConnecticutLifestyles.com. In addition, we were fortunate enough to be seated with Robert Rustico, sommelier from Connecticut Distributors (who distribute Joel Gott Wines) and Jeremy Doyle representing Joel Gott Wines. It was truly a wine educating experience!

Here is a photo pictorial of our Fresh Salt and Joel Gott wine pairing dinner.

Cheese Table and Passed Hors d’oeuvres

Lamb Meatballs Pops, Crabmeat Cannoli, Lobster Arancini

Our hors d’oeuvres were paired with a delicious Pinot Gris - which was actually my favorite wine of the evening!

Pinot Gris, Joel Gott, 2015, Willamette Valley, Oregon

First Course

Duck Confit Taco


Duck Tacos with Dark Cherry-Chipotle Salsa, Crumbled Goat Cheese

This delicate dish paired beautifully with Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc, Joel Gott, 2015, California

Second Course

Steel Head Trout

Steel Head Trout with Shiitake-Leek Tart, Passion Fruit-Ginger Sauce

This was my first time tasting Steel Head Trout. Wow! It was so good - a bit reminiscent of salmon.


Chardonnay, Joel Gott, 2015, California


Third Course

Sweet & Spicy Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon

Filet Mignon served with Butternut Squash Ravioli, Morel Mushroom Sauce

I wish my photo could do justice to this delicious filet - it was incredibly tender - and literally cut with a fork.  Paired with the Pinot Noir, it was a win-win!


Pinot Noir, Joel Gott, 2014, Willamette Valley, Oregon


Fourth Course

Olive Oil Poached Halibut

Halibut with Valencia Rice, Roasted White Asparagus, Fennel Saffron Sauce

This hearty fish went well with our Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon, Joel Gott, 2012, Napa Valley, CA

Fifth Course

Seven Sins Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Frosting, Chocolate Ganache, Black Cherry Sauce

I'll confess that I'm more of a milk chocolate lover than a dark chocolate lover - but this cake, the ganache, and the black cherry sauce made me a convert - and with the grenache wine (another first for me) I'm calling this my favorite pairing of the night!


Grenache, Joel Gott, 2014, California


After all this beautiful wine and food - we took a walk of the beautiful grounds at Saybrook Point Inn before heading home for the night with some new favorite wines to enjoy this season!

David Burke Prime's Table Side Smoked Manhattan and Aged Steak Flight

Social Media Promotion

Oscar Worthy Presentation at David Burke Prime


As my foodie fortune would have it, I was included in an invite to sample David Burke Prime's new specials at their Foxwood Resort Casino location joining my friends Greg and Wendy from CTLifestyles.

With just one look at Prime's spacious entryway, you know you are in for a great dining experience that highlights a wonderful meal in an entertaining fashion. A life-size model steer greets you upon arrival, lighting is a soft amber tone, and there are large comfortable cowhide covered banquettes and comfy white leather over-stuffed chairs for seating.



Open at Foxwoods since 2008, Prime is operated by the Craveable Hospitality Group, who manage ten restaurants in the Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Chicago, and Aspen area. I can certainly see how they penned the motto "Eat, Drink, Crave" - as they are known for "transforming each meal into a cherished memory" by offering impeccable service and creative food and beverage offerings.

We started with some delicious sparking rosé to go along with this amazing seafood tower featuring lobster , shrimp, clams, oysters, Alaskan king crab legs, jumbo lump crab meat, served with sauces like old bay mustard sauce, sweet chili cocktail, mignonette, and more!

And it just kept getting better and better from there!

Next our mixologist extraordinaire gave us the premiere performance of Prime's new amazing cocktail, the Smoked Rosemary Manhattan.

Below are some pictures of the preparation process and a link to a video  HERE








And the finished product! 
A theatrical Manhattan Cocktail like none other before!

The Smoked Rosemary Orange Manhattan

Foxwoods Resort Casino

This cocktail tastes just as amazing as its preparation shows!  And I love these new jumbo ice cubes as they hold the 'chill' longer and allow the cocktail to shine and not hamper the flavor with melted ice. The Smoked Rosemary and Orange Manhattan was so subtly smooth with the added aromatics of the rosemary and the citrus essence from the fresh orange. Made with premium rye - it's a definite win-win!

In addition to the table side cocktail presentation we were also treated to a table side preparation of a Caesar Salad, complete with white anchovies, Prime's signature crab croutons, and thickly grated cheese.

Next was another fun little treat! A clothesline of candied bacon! The Clothesline Bacon appetizer consists of  extra thick-cut candied bacon, black pepper maple glaze, and flambéed table side, as well!

Next was the star of the show  - the Aged Steak Flight! This fabulous new special allows you to sample not one, not two, not three, but FOUR different styles of aged beef. This special Steak Flight includes a sampling of the 30-day bone-in Kansas City strip, 40-day ribeye, 60-day sirloin, and 75-day rib-eye. These hand-selected beef cuts are aged in their patented Himalayan salt lined aging cooler which allows them to develop the deep intense flavors that only aged beef offers.

Aged Steak Flight


Prime's Aged Steak Flight

As is typical with aged beef - the longer it is aged the more intense and earthy the flavor. As we worked our way around the plate sampling the different aging times, we couldn't all agree on a 'hands down' favorite. Each cut was delicious in its own right - and each of us had different flavor preferences. Suffice it to say - they were all great!

After all that sampling - we somehow found room for dessert! We nibbled on the Cheesecake Lollipop Tree complete with sour apple cotton candy (say what!!) .... before digging in to our final table side presentation of Toffee Monkey Bread made with banana, pecan brioche, bourbon-butterscotch ice cream. No descriptive adjectives needed. So good!!!

Another favorite - the Molten Chocolate Cake, made with a deep, rich chocolate cake, a chocolate ganache filling, and served with a side of creamy coffee gelato.

We finished the night with a tour of the dry aging room and the wine tower. Both spaces were equally incredible and that wine tower alone is worth a visit on your next trip to David Burke Prime at Foxwoods Resort Casino.
