Tuesday Nights with Chef Adam

Tuesdays at 17: Small Plates with Wine Pairings

When you have a Chef with the cooking pedigree and creativity of Chef Adam Cooke, each week is a delicious journey to showcase seasonal ideas based on fresh area ingredients. As summer wanes and fall approaches, Chef Adam is working closely with local growers and farmers to select the finest fruits, vegetables, and ingredients around. On Tuesday evenings, he will be featuring these ingredients in a series of small, elegant plates and pairing them with fine wines from around the world. Utilizing the oldest, most traditional cooking methods and combining them with innovative recipes and techniques, Chef Adam and his experienced team will create distinctive dishes that are at once subtle, savory, and eclectic—and that appeal to a wide-range of palates.

"My goal is to create plates that are my own interpretation of local regional dishes, just as George and Rich have made Hotel Domestique an extension of their international heritage and experience."

Chef Adam will present a variety of small plate options paired with wine. Reservations are recommended.
3 plates for $30*, 4 for $40*, 5 for $50*, 6 for $60*

*Minimum of three plates. A pairing is a tasting (1.5 to 2 oz. pour) and is complimentary with each plate. Corkage fees apply.

USP Pro Challenge Party and Ride

A ride with George is always fun…sometimes mellow, and other times quite spirited. Yesterday’s USA Pro Challenge Party Ride was a great mixture of both. 75%20 riders rolled out in the sultry afternoon heat to wind our way over the hills around Hotel Domestique and end with a drag race up Chinquapin Road. Ice cold beer and a delicious buffet of savory and sweet hors d’oeuvres awaited guests while Stage 4 of the USA Pro Challenge showed on the big screen. It was a perfect night to celebrate the Hincapie Development Team’s success this week at the USA Pro Challenge while enjoying a beautiful August evening with friends out under the stars.

Tasting: Wines of Southern Italy

The majestic natural setting and temperate climate at Hotel Domestique is often compared to the rolling countryside and mild breezes of southern Italy. On Thursday, August 28, we will take that one step further as we offer a tasteful exploration of southern Italy, by the glass no less. The region, once taken for granted in vintner circles, is now enjoying the fruits of its…well, fruit. Grapes to be precise. The mineral-rich soil in southern Italy helps grow unique, flavorful, expressive grapes that are a joy to drink.

On the 28th, Haw River Wine Man Distribution will be at Restaurant 17 to introduce a number of superb, subtly distinctive wines to guests. We will be featuring excellent bottles: two reds and two whites. It is going to be a fun, memorable night.
