We're sorry to announce that due to last minute changes to Chef Philippe's travel plans (more on that later) we’ve decided to reschedule our dinner with ilili. Taking into consideration our harvest schedule we have come up with Wednesday, November 16th, 2011 for the dinner.
For those of you who didn’t get the chance to read our previous email, we’re excited to announce the pairing of our wines with a unique menu for the first dinner of its kind in New York City. Chef Philippe Massoud and his team are launching a new dinner series, designed to showcase the gastronomic evolution of Lebanese and Levantine cuisine. Since opening, ilili has been a leader in contemporary Eastern Mediterranean dining, re-imagining and re-branding for 21st Century Manhattan. This series is intended to show you ilili’s vision of elevated Mediterranean Cuisine. These dinners showcase modern techniques, unique ingredients and new creations for our most daring menu to date.
