Thursday Sips & Nibbles

I am back again with a new edition of Thursday Sips & Nibbles, my regular column where I highlight some interesting, upcoming food & drink events..
1) WuBurger, which opened two months ago, has made a few changes based on consumer feedback. It is one of my favorite new burger joints so I'm glad to see they are doing well and adding items to their menu.

They now offer two salads, including:
WU Salad - Crisp Romaine, Blue Cheese, Applewood Bacon, Roma Tomatoes, Crispy Fried Onions and a House-Made WU Vinaigrette
Caesar Salad - Crisp Romaine, Shaved Parmesan, House-Made Ciabatta Croutons, House-Made Caesar Dressing

In addition, they now serve their Chili as a soup , with Ciabatta bread, and have changed from Nathan hotdogs to Pearl hot dogs. I had their Chili the other day and it was delicious, and I will note that it is a meat chili without any beans (my preferred type of chili).

2) Tonight, at 6:30pm, Legal Harborside will host an exclusive champagne dinner with Krug, the famed brand founded by Joseph Krug in 1843. Legal Harborside will team up with Krug’s US Brand Ambassador, Nicole Burke, to host a four-plus-course dinner featuring signature cuisine paired with choices from their Champagne House. Legal Harborside has just released ten exclusive spots for reservations at this exquisite dinner featuring bubbly from the “world's best-rated House of Champagne.”

The menu will be presented as follows:

Potato Gnocchi (paddlefish caviar, soubise sauce, crispy leeks)
Krug Vintage Brut, 2003
Organic King Salmon (juniper, beet emulsion, cucumber)
Krug Vintage Brut, 2000
North Atlantic Lobster (puff pastry, sauce Américaine, fines herbes)
Krug Grand Cuvée
