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.
