Coronado loves wine. We have a few wine bars in town, even a tasting room near the Hotel Del Coronado. It’s no big shocker to know that Andrew Mariani of Scribe Winery is flying into this small town for a special wine dinner event at Leroy’s Kitchen + Lounge. Andrew along with his brother, Adam, is part of the “Terroir Two” as the New York Times recently called them. They have gained fame as two of the best known winemakers in the US. On April 8th, Andrew has selected several of Scribe’s sustainable varietals for an exclusive 5-course dinner prepared by Executive Chef, Tim Kolanko.

Here are some other Leroy’s Kitchen + Lounge favorites:
Berry Brioche French Toast ($12)
Raspberry mascarpone, mixed berry compote, with a chambord reduction. Sweet and rich. Creamy because of the mascarpone. It makes a perfect Sunday brunch option.
Sweet Corn Ravioli
Fava beans, chanterelle mushroom, baby tomatoes, and pea salad. Soft and smooth in texture and flavor combinations. It makes a wonderful vegetarian option.
