The 2016 season continues with a lavish dinner on Thursday, May 19, 2016 at StripSteak by Michael Mina with world renowned Wines of Rioja, presented by Dhane Chesson, the US National Director for Wines of Rioja.
On May 19th, diners will enjoy a decadent four-course menu with passed hors d’oeuvres, prepared by StripSteak’s chef de cuisine Derrick Roberts, complemented by wines of Rioja.
