Paul Hobbs Wine Dinner at Market 17 this Thursday Night!

For my latest New Times assignment, I had the pleasure of interviewing the owner of Market 17, a fabulous new restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale that is hosting a wine dinner this Thursday featuring world renowned winemaker Paul Hobbs as Guest of Honor.

If you haven't heard of Paul Hobbs yet, you may recognize some names on his impressive resume which includes positions at Robert Mondavi and Opus One as well as consulting for prestigious labels such as Peter Michael, Lewis, Vine Cliff, Fisher, and Chalone. Lucky guests will enjoy a five-course menu prepared by Chef Daniel Ramos paired with selections from the Hobbs portfolio.


Kirsta Grauberger, co-owner of Market 17 and sommelier in her own right, was kind enough to dish about the new restaurant as well as Thursday's event and give readers a sneak peek at the delicious menu. Please click here to read all the juicy details and, if you're fortunate enough to be in the neighborhood, don't miss out on this fabulous evening!


Cheers,

  4. Nice article, Stephanie. That's a lot of tasting menus....you usually only see one.

    One of our fave fun restaurants is on 17th St. (My parents lived in FtL so it's my second home. Son lives there now and my oldest was born there!) Anyway...we love Bistro Mezzaluna. Every airport trip usually ends or starts there!

  9. You really must love your work. Do I dare call it work? Fortunately, I'm not an envious person. That's a good thing. Green is not a good color for me. So, carry on and have fun enough for several of us. Blessings...Mary
