The event at the Riggsby was a great success! A good time was had by all who attended.
The multi-course dinner featured Wellfleet oysters, crab salad with caviar, roasted duck with kasha varnishkes and a cheese course.
Daniel, the GM and certified Sommelier, did an amazing job describing the wines that we drank during the event from Copain Vineyards and also provided some general advice about how to properly pair wine with food.
All of the guests said they had a lovely evening and really like the throwback atmosphere of the Riggsby.
