Blue’s Dinner Club Season 6: Chef Justin Encore


Blue’s Dinner Club Season 6 continued on Oct. 30 with an encore performance by Chef Justin Aprahamian of Sanford. A James Beard Foundation Award-winning chef, Justin kicked off last springs Dinner Club Season 5 “Yes, Chef!” with a fantastic dinner at Blue’s in February.

The encore performance started with a seasonal spin: all of the “Reception and Tasting” hors d’oeuvres incorporated leaves for Fall. Chefs Justin, Joe and Blue’s Executive Chef Erick then took us through a straightforward tour de force.

Our next event is The Grand Tasting on Saturday, Nov. 21, where we’ll have appetizers and A LOT more wine to try. We’ll have tastings of more than 70 wines and more than 100 total beverage selections, with all the wine will be available for purchases at retail-or-better prices, so you can stock up for the holidays or replenish your cellar. Enjoy 15 percent off cases of the same wine, and 10 percent off mixed cases. 6 p.m., $60, buy your tickets here at Blue’s – or online.
