Celebrated Chefs from across the country including Jonathan Waxman (Barbuto), Sean Brock (Husk), Paul Qui (Qui) and Ludo Lefebvre (Trois Mec) will collaborate with participating Harlem area restaurants on a menu for a one night residency. Each course will be expertly paired with a delicious and affordable red, white and / or sweet Bordeaux wine that will reflect the versatility and accessibility of our wines with the wide range of cuisines represented at Dine In Harlem. 

Additionally, you’ll find us at the weekend’s Grand Tasting in beautiful Morningside Park where food vendors from across the neighborhood will offer their unique fare alongside music and dance performances and art exhibitions from local artists.
