Posted by: Roxy - Print This Post Print This Post

Okay, readers, I know I deceived you once before about my availability to attend the Chef’s Table Dinner at Pierre’s on June 12th and then ditched you for a prior commitment to Movin’ Out at NJPAC….but this time, I’ve marked my calendar and I’m pulling together a table of ten or more for Pierre’s 14th Annual Seafood Dinner. We’re going to the one on Thursday, August 14th, during a brief break from the beach in Bay Head, but if that date doesn’t work for you or if you like to wear orange pants for your night out on the town (see note below), Chef Michael is serving up the same menu and wines on Wednesday, July 16th. It just won’t be as much fun.

NOTE TO ORANGE PANTS, AND YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE (or should I post last year’s photo of you with a special finger in the air?): Please make plans to attend Pierre’s Summer Seafood Dinner on Wednesday, July 16th, or be forewarned, we will have one or two tables full of Roxiticus Desperate Housewives in cheerful attendance on Thursday, August 14th.

Now, moving on to the dinner, this year Chef Michael has paired his seafood dishes with white wines from Italy. Good friend and Italian wine aficionado Roberto Rosenfeld will be at Pierre’s on both nights to talk a little about the wines. The Roxiticus Desperate Housewives will try to keep it down so that others can hear, but we may not be able to restrain ourselves from helping ourselves to seconds of our favorite wines.

If you enjoy fish and shellfish this is a dinner you do not want to miss. Casual dress is welcomed, especially if the weather is warm. And now, without further adieu (Tish, you spoke French!), here’s the menu for Pierre’s 14th Annual Seafood Dinner:

Reception (likely to be held on the porch if the weather is nice):
Mussels, clams, shrimp, calamari, marinated salmon, crabmeat
Nino Franco Prosecco Rustico


Tuna tartare with wasabi caviar
Pojer e Sandri Muller Thurgau della Dolomiti 2006
Soft-shell crab a la provencale
Alois Lageder Lagrein Rosato 2007

Fresh pasta with lobster and julienne vegetables
Marco Felluga Molamatta 2006

Braised striped bass with cucumbers
Inama Vigneti di Foscarino Soave Classico 2005

Blueberry tart and crème fraiche
Paolo Saracco Moscato d’Asti 2006
