I love the wines of Alsace, so am all revved up about an upcoming wine dinner that CoolVines has arranged at Blue Point Grill, indubitably one of Princeton’s favorite restaurants. This should be a match made in heaven, so if you are interested, make your reservation “PDQ,” as my mother used to say. And guess what – for worknight wimps like me, there’s even an early seating at 6pm! (Followed by an 8pm seating, for the rest of you; limit of 30 at each.)
Here are the details:
CoolVines and Blue Point Grill announce a special evening of food and wine with Isabelle Boxler-Sipp of Domaine Agape. Chef Steven Murray of Blue Point Grill has created a custom 4 course tasting menu of fresh seafood specialties to pair with these small production wines from Alsace.

I’m in. My favorite restaurant in Princeton and some pretty hot sounding wines.
I thought the Blue Point Grill was a BYOB? Did they get a liquor license?
No, they’re still a BYOB, so CoolVines had to do some special paperwork in order to do this. New Jersey’s twisted regulations…(not that we’re the only state so challenged in that department).
