Over at Lukshon in Culver City on Saturday, chef-owner Sang Yoon welcomes Józef and Judit Bodó, owners of tiny Bott Winery of Tokaj, the prestigious wine region in the northeast corner of Hungary, for the first of Lukshon’s Winemaker Dinner Series. It promises to be an intriguing pairing of Hungarian wines with Lukshon’s contemporary southeast Asian cuisine. The cost is $95 per person, including tax and gratuity. To reserve a spot, call (310) 202.6808 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. More details here.
Can't make that one? You have two chances to try the couple's wines because Santos Uy at Papilles is also presenting a wine dinner featuring their wines on Sunday. A special four-course dinner, ($65, including wine) will match Bott wines with chef Tim Carey’s food. "Tokaj is mainly known for their sweet wines," Uy said, "but the Bodó's make some incredible terroir-driven, dry, sometimes with a touch of sweetness, powerhouses. I was fortunate to visit their winery in Tokaj three years ago, and I'm a huge fan of the wines. We will be showcasing two of their wines as well as some other Hungarian selections paired with some Hungarian-inspired dishes." For reservations, call (323) 871-2026.
