Yesterday, was the first of the four event wine series at Gris Gris. Perfect event for the Wine Enthusiast. I think this is one of my favorite places for the wine series in New Orleans.
I am so happy that I attended the event.. I experienced the taste of so many wines. We spent most of our time on the 3rd floor and rooftop.
Gris Gris has a private event space with access to the third story rooftop. The cool thing about this restaurant is every floor has a balcony. We got there, sometime before 'Wine o'clock' and the ambiance of the restaurant was really pretty. The vibe was just right at Gris Gris with great energy. I am all about vibe and energy..oh and FOOD & DRINK!
I have never been a Rose' drinker, so I was excited to try this event. I had a LOVE AFFAIR with the Cuvee' Rose. I will be looking for that at a wine cellar. I always say I will work on that Wine Lover's Guide to NOLA and include places like this in the list.
For $35 you really get well above what you spend. Access to wines, tastings, bites and giveaways. Just couldn't resist, so we made a reservation to sit on the second floor to eat. The kitchen is lit with Good Cooks and Top Chefs! I posted some photos below of the rolling GUMBO, Chicken & Dumplings and Shrimp & Grits. All three excellent choices. I suggest trying them in a plate sharing situation. I really liked the chicken & dumplings. The dumplings were so fresh. After I posted a few lives on my IG, I received many questions.
If you are interested, call them ASAP to reserve your spot at (504) 272-0241.
