We welcomed back Martin Zikmund, our certified Sommelier.
Did you know:
He helped us plan out our wine menu and suggested pairings to take our appetizer menu to the next level? Martin is so good at finding the best tasting wines that are unique. We call him at all hours with questions like : What wine do we pair with butter chicken? What's an amazing red wine at a reasonable price point? What should we pair with fish? What menu should we serve with our French White wine feature? And Martin's picks always are a hit!
He is also an award winning flair bartender. What is a flair bartender? Here is a little teaser on what Martin can do!
He definitely had some tricks up his sleeve for this session so be sure to watch to find out what he got up to!. Click here to watch our Sip Session 2!
