Palo Alto Grill is hosting an $85 four-course Miloš Winery wine-paired dinner on Thursday evening, with a menu from Executive Chef Ryan Shelton designed to pair perfectly with selections from Miloš which is located on the Pelješac Peninsula of Croatia.
Winemaker Frano Miloš is a Plavac Mali ("little blue") grape specialist farming steep 45-degree slopes of ragged, head-pruned vines planted in pure dolomitic limestone.
Reservations are offered on a first come, first reserved basis and are limited to 20 people. Seating begins at 6:30 p.m.
Chef Shelton's menu will include Sautéed Shrimp with garlic butter and shaved fennel served with a 2012 Stagnum Rosé; Oven-Braised Sarma Cabbage stuffed with veal and rice with a 2009 Plavac; Dalmatian Pastiçada Beef Short Ribs with fig, roasted garlic, gnocchi with a 2006 Stagnum; and Brioche Beignets with strawberry-rose ice cream and meringue served with 2007 Stagnum Poluslatki (semi-sweet) 2007 Stagnum Desertni.
