Third Course was a 30 Dry Aged 1855 NY Strip Steak, 61 Degree Egg, Kaluga Caviar, Foie Gras Butter paired with Leclerc Briant, Brut 1er Cru Les Chevres Pierreuses NV.
The finale was the amazing dessert course which was Poached Stone Fruit, Champagne Sabayon, Grains of Paradise Shortbread paired with Leclerc Briant La Crousette Blanc de Blanc N/V.
