Executive Chef Freddy Sanchez's menu features sweet corn bisque shooter, crab louie tower, pan seared grouper, braised short rib and Tahitian vanilla bean panna cotta. Sulinski and McDowell will select beer and wine pairing for each course, and guests will have the opportunity to vote on the winner.
