The Art of Dining
Art and wine aficionados won’t want to miss a perfectly paired event at Birmingham’s Daxton Hotel on Wednesday, January 19. The event kicks off with a tour of the hotel’s art collection, where guests will be welcomed with champagne and an in-depth introduction to the art that inspires the evening. The Daxton houses more than 400 original pieces of cutting-edge art curated from around the world by renowned Saatchi Art, including works by notable artists such as Andrew Weir and Melanie Arcand, as well as Adrian Landon’s Golden Mechanical Horse. During the tour, guests will get a chance to see and learn more about the select works of art that have served as the inspiration for the evening’s menu. After completing the tour, attendees will be welcomed into the Wine Room where executive chef Garrison Price and director of beverage and service Liz Martinez join forces to walk the attendees through a one-of-a-kind culinary experience with a full menu starting off with an amuse-bouche, followed by three courses, and concluding with a decadent dessert. Each item on the menu is paired with a wine selected by Martinez. Tickets are $200, plus tax and gratuity. Space is limited to 12 guests. 298 S.
