I've never been to The Gatsby. In fact, the last time I was in the building, it was a Chinese buffet named Tang's at least five years ago when my office was right around the corner.
In recent years, however, I've heard many great things about the restaurant, and I'll be there for this event.
The menu looks good:
Ceviche of shrimp and crab with avocado, red onion and Thai basil
San Angelo Pinot Grigio
Wild mushroom risotto with spring peas, parmesan and truffle butter
Chianti Classico Riserva
Marinated grilled skirt steak with chive whipped potatoes, pearl onions and red wine
Castello Banfi Brunello Di Montalcino
Warm chocolate brownie with pistachio ice cream and cherry sauce
Rosa Regale Brachetto
