So we had our first official "event" at our restaurant this past week. As odd as it may sound, we did a French Wine pairing with our food. We were lucky enough to have Pierrick Bouquet, SoCal French wine specialist, come host the event with us. Pierrick stopped in a few weeks ago with a good friend of ours, Evelyn, to try out our food to see how he thought it would pair with French wines and came out of the dinner as excited as we were.

What we came up with was four (4) wines to be served along with fresh vegetables and a sampler plate consisting of beef, chicken, salmon, and shrimp. The event was a lot of fun, and by fun I mean buzzed, stuffed, and happy campers. It was a new experience for a lot of us to have French wines with Shabu, but we're hoping to do this again every few months with new pairings!
Our internet spies also caught us on the following sites for our event (OK, so we didn't headline the event section, but just scroll around and you'll see us there somewhere in tiny font):
