A sea of wine glasses at Disney Hall...

Thursday night's tony Wine Aficionado dinner at Disney Hall featured some lovely wines (I was not familiar with Araujo Estates, but now I'm a fan) as well as Sandra Bernhard running off at the mouth about vampires giving head (watch your teeth!), how much the Republican debate sucked (this went over well with the Chanel-suited crowd), how reality television should be banned, which would somehow lead to curing cancer and finishing with, "So get drunk, because it's the only escape." Nice.

Anyhoo Joachim Splichal cooked up a wine-friendly spread including crab salad with preserved kumquats, black-trumpet stuffed quail and incredibly tender, almost soothing, beef tenderloin with morels. We finished with a pretty yuzu tart. It was also announced that Splichal's new restaurant going into the former Maple Drive space will be called Paper Fish. We don't know what this means, though...
