Cafe Kandahar's monthly wine dinners feature our highest form of creative expression. The cafe strives to present rare, delectable tastes, and unique wines. We begin by selecting a modern theme for the cuisine, such as a taste of New Orleans. We then develop a menu in which each item is thoughtfully matched to the characteristics of an individual wine, allowing both the food and wine the opportunity to complement and accentuate each other. It is through our passion for acheiving a perfect pair that we hope to enlighten our guests to the art of pairing food and wine.
"These events are fun and educational, giving us a chance to portray the variety of foods we offer paired with spectacular wines," said Blanton. "We think these events provide our guests with an exquisite and truly unique fine dining experience."
These events are by reservation only and the restaurant will be closed to the public during these events.
For the ultimate fine dining experience book the Chef’s Table at Cafe Kandahar for a personal one on one with Executive Chef Andy Blanton. An exquisite menu will be personally developed and planned for you and your dinner will be prepared before your eyes in a private room in the back of the restaurant. This is a unique culinary treat for those wanting to experience the very best in fine dining. The Chef’s Table can accommodate from two to six guests. Advanced reservation required.
Cafe Kandahar is proud to offer our guests a 25% discount on all bottles of wine (except high end varietals) from our award winning wine list of over 350 selections every Wednesday evening this summer. Come up and enjoy thoughtfully constructed cuisine inspired by classic and modern influences and complement it with a bottle of wine.
