Pairing wine and food can be as overwhelming as trying to find a matching pair of socks when your roommate is a sock-eating dryer monster. Take the guesswork out of fine dining with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a four-course wine-pairing dinner at Husick's Country Store (up to a $178 value). Your Groupon expires on April 29, 2011, and can be used for dinner on one of the following Fridays: October 15; November 5, 12, or 19; January 7, 14, 21, or 28; February 4, 18, or 25; March 4, 11, 18, or 25; or April 1, 8, 15, or 29. Husick's will add more available dates upon request or as needed.
Family-owned Husick's offers gourmet foodstuffs and gift baskets, wines, and periodic dinners in a charming country store. With a seat at a Winemaker's Dinner, you'll join up to 20 guests for a sumptuous, seasonal meal in the heart of the country, complete with an introduction to some regional wines and a chance to play footsy with a devilishly handsome Tule elk. The menu abounds with fresh, local ingredients, starting with crab cakes dressed in red-pepper aioli sauce ($11) and a salad of field greens, delta pears, Cypress Grove chevre and pear vinaigrette ($13). Roasted sage and butternut squash soup comes drizzled with truffle oil ($11) and tastes like autumn in a bowl, without the unpleasantness of dry leaf-bits between your teeth. For the main course, feast on braised short ribs in pinot noir sauce, roasted rosemary-garlic fingerling potatoes, french-cut green beans with prosciutto and mushrooms ($37) and a glass of Spoto cabernet ($21). Crème brûlée served with fresh berries and mint in chocolate cups ($14) provides an elegant companion to Bogle port ($8). Throughout your meal, you'll sample house wines from the likes of Old Vine Zin, James Blake, Tierra Del Ore, and Heringer Estates.
Housed inside a more than century-old general store and the former Husick's Hardware store, Husick's offers a unique rustic charm with eclectic wares creatively displayed atop barrels and hay bales.
You must call ahead to reserve; there is a maximum of 20 people per dinner.
- Husick's Country Store is a handsome setting, owing in equal parts to the careful restoration of a wonderful old levee building and…genius for design. – Delta Explorer
- Located right on the main road into town, Husick's has a polished, homey charm that drew me in from the moment I peeked in the door. Everywhere I turned, I saw something I wanted to bring home. – Kitchen Travels
