DAVENPORT, IA – Imagine the luxury of sitting down to a four-course dinner featuring Chilean wine and cuisine. It may sound like a dream come true – but how far would you need to travel for such a unique international dining experience?
Thanks to business partners Danny Holmes and Wes Ludloff, you don’t have to travel any farther than 1225 E. Kimberly Road, Davenport, Iowa – the address of their restaurant, Pepperjack’s American Food & Spirits.
At 6:30 p.m. Wed., August 21, Pepperjack’s American Food & Spirits is offering ‘A Toast to Good Taste’ – a Chilean Wine Dinner for $45 per person. Patrons must secure reservations in advance with a credit card. Each of the four gourmet courses will be served with a different wine from Dimitri Wine & Spirits:
Sautéed mussels with lemon-butter sauce and garlic croutons. Served with Anakena Chardonnay.
Ensalada Chilena: onion and tomato salad with avocado, blueberries, and honey lime vinaigrette. Served with Santa Carolina Reserve Sauvignon Blanc.
Coriander-crusted corvine, Chile risotto with shitake mushrooms, and prosciutto-wrapped asparagus. Served with Santa Carolina Reserve Pinot Noir.
Leche Asada: a Chilean version of caramel flan, topped with caramel, kiwi and almonds. Served with Casas Patronales Reserve Carmenere.
According to Ludloff, ‘A Toast to Good Taste’ is the first of many eclectic, enjoyable dining experiences that Pepperjack’s plans to present to the community. “We are always looking to offer unique dining and entertainment experiences,” he said, “and certainly, the Chilean Wine Dinner will be a memorable, one-of-a-kind experience. Dimitri Papageorgiou from Dimitri Wine & Spirits will present the wines and our own Chef Russell Bolar will present the foods. Wines served will be available for purchase by the bottle for those who wish to take some home.”
In addition to the upcoming Chilean Wine Dinner, Pepperjack’s also offers Open Mic/Karaoke in the lounge on Thursday nights, 8 p.m. to midnight, with extended Happy Hour specials, as well as Live Music on Friday nights.
“We are always scheduling something new,” said Holmes. “We encourage community members in the Quad-Cities and the surrounding area to ‘Like’ us on Facebook and check our page frequently to see what we have to offer.” The Facebook page for Pepperjack’s American Food & Spirits is www.facebook.com/Pepperjacks.Restaurant.
