LAKE PLACID, N.Y. – A touch of the old country will come to the North Country on Wednesday, April 5, when the AAA Four Diamond Mirror Lake Inn and The View Restaurant welcome Italian winemaker Claudio Mariotto.
The View Restaurant, AAA Four Diamond rated the past 10 years, will present a four-course dinner at 7 PM, pairing a Mariotto selection with each course.
“This will be an exquisite evening of food and wine,” said The View Restaurant’s Justin Peregoy, a certified sommelier. “These wines are a unique expression of the power and elegance of Northern Italy. The collaboration of Claudio and The View Restaurant will leave a lasting impression.”
Mariotto, of Vho, Italy, 50 miles south of Milano, will be the featured guest in a meet-and-greet from 6-7 PM in the glassed-enclosed porch off the The View’s Wikoff Room. His Northern Italian wines will be available at this time, with cash bar, as Mariotto presents and explains each of his selections.
Then at 7:00, guests will be seated as Executive Chef Jarrad Lang’s Four Diamond culinary team presents the four courses consisting of a Sardine Fritte with Citrus and Fennel, Crispy Pork Belly with Sweet Potato Purée, Red Wine Braised Bison Short Ribs, and Sugar House Creamery’s Dutch Knuckle Cheese presented three ways as the final course.
Cost of this four-course presentation, with wine pairings indigenous to the province of Alessandria, is $100 per person plus tax and gratuity. Reservations must be made at The View Restaurant by calling 518-302-3000, and will be limited.
Lodging reservations for the evening can be made directly through the Inn’s reservations staff at 518-523-2544.
