In need of a last-minute Valentine’s Day dinner recommendation? On the prowl for something seductively simple, yet sophisticated? Look no further than Wayne’s Carmel Cafe & Wine Bar.
Special for Thurs., Feb. 13 through Sun., Feb. 16, the Main Line newcomer will present an a la carte roster of signature shareable plates and hand-picked imported wine pairings, allowing you to craft your own culinary adventure for cupid’s holiday.
Carmel’s festive Share & Pair menu kicks off with an enticing short list of dishes made for splitting, from Basque crab cakes with avocado salad, to crispy scallops wrapped in prosciutto accented with tomato jam. Three-cheese arancini, red and yellow roasted beet salad, and lobster bisque finish off the roundup of this globally inspired tasting.
Entrees geared to red or white wine lovers make up the bulk of this weekend’s featured menu. A Mosel, Germany-imported, semi-sweet Riesling will impress those attracted to the lighter side, which happens to be coupled with appealing seafood-heavy entrees like a duo of cold water lobster tails and seared tuna dressed with red wine reduction.
A medium-bodied Italian Chianti and a dry, full-bodied Pinot Noir were hand-selected for diners adoring the reds, with options like chicken Madeira and pappardelle bolognese elevating those pairings.
Like any proper celebration, Carmel concludes your Valentine’s visit with a sweet ending: decadent chocolate lava cake with two glasses of Prosecco.
