Urban Tide Hosts First Chef’s Table Event with Pascual Toso
Chef de cuisine Jared GrossUrban Tide, the new name of the former Napa restaurant at the Hyatt Regency Orlando, which is the new name of the former Peabody, is hosting the first in a series of Chef’s Table events on Friday, April 24. The dinner will feature a four-course menu from UT’s chef de cuisine, Jared Gross (same name and title that he had before). Special guest for the evening is Juan Pablo Gonzalez of Pascual Toso of Argentina, whose wines will be served. Gonzalez is making a special trip from his home in Mendoza for the dinner.
Follow this link to see the menu. I’m particularly intrigued by the Linguiça Sausage Croquettes with Braised Rabbit Gribeche paired with the 2012 Malbec Reserve, which is one of Toso’s top wines.
The evening will begin with a reception at 6:30 p.m. with dinner at 7. Cost is $80 per person plus service charge. Reservations can be made by calling 407-345-4570.
Also be sure to mark down May 23 for the Hyatt Regency Orlando’s next Chef’s Table at its Fiorenzo Italian Steakhouse. That one will help kick off the Summer Sensation Memorial Day weekend concert and celebration and will feature beer pairings with a menu by chef de cuisine Will Walters. Sounds like fun.

Mom’s Up Next
Here it comes, the all-time, hands-down busiest dining day of the year: Mother’s Day. You might say it’s the Mother of all Sunday Brunches. You might not.
Anyway, I’m busy putting together a list of top dining spots to fete mom on her big day.
Restaurateurs, if you are doing a Mother’s Day special on May 10, please send me the details. I’ll include them in my Mother’s Day roundup (that sounds like the worst rodeo event ever).
Click this link to send me an email. Include the name, address and phone number of your restaurant and links to any pertinent web pages. A JPEG of the menu is fine (PDFs don’t work).
