Join us for a fun and casual sit-down wine pairing dinner, with a menu created by Surbhi Sahni, renowned New York City chef and native of New Dehli. Sahni pairs Eastern and Western, fusing tastes and textures seamlessly to create memorable meals.

While some of these techniques may be new to us, Sahani’s ease in the kitchen will give you the confidence, knowledge and skills to create an Indian dinner party all your own right here in New York.
