Event Description

Join us at the Lightner Museum for an evening of Gilded elegance and sophisticated sipping as food historian and James Beard Award-nominated author Ms. Francine Segan and Sommelier Mr. Anthony Porcellini of Carrera Wine Cellar guide guests through a 19th century-inspired menu and wine pairing. The four-course menu has been specially designed by the chefs of Culinary Outfitters and drawn from archived Alcazar Hotel and Casino menus dating from the 1890s through the 1920s. Each course will be accompanied by a selected wine to enhance the dining experience.


Ms. Segan will give an introduction to the dining trends and expectations of the Gilded Age and will be assisted by Mr. Porcellini in explaining how the wine is meant to bring out the inherent flavors of each dish. As French wines were a common theme in the 19th century, so will Mr. Porcellini carefully choose wines derived from this period.


This dinner will be hosted in the Historic Pool Area from 6:30 – 9:00 PM.


Proceeds from this event allow the Lightner Museum to continue expanding our program schedule and increase audience engagement.
