Restaurant Lozano to Host Wine Tasting, Frank and Deanís Hosts Tahoe Giveaway

 

by Bill Coburn

 

I stopped by Restaurant Lozano in Sierra Madre the other night and had a really delicious Jerk Chicken entrťe with a cilantro and lime sauce, served with black beans, white rice and a jicama slaw.  I admit Iím not a big fan of black beans, but I ate them with the rice and it was a good combination.  It was a nice sized breast of chicken, and unlike most places that I feel overpower you with cilantro, this sauce was more like a hint of cilantro, which I really enjoyed.  The jicama slaw was a first for me, and I enjoyed it, made with shredded jicama and red onions.  Katie and Keelan were visiting Katieís dad, so I only have one entrťe to report on, but I recommend it, it was a very enjoyable (but lonely) dinner.

 

Restaurant Lozano will be hosting a wine tasting this week, featuring the wines of Dover Canyon Winery.  Steve Cunningham will be your wine guide for the evening, he is a former Submarine Commander, an avid wine collector and is on the wine committee at The Atheneum at Caltech. Four to five wines are poured and light hors d'oeuvres are included.  ONLY $15.00.  I havenít actually tried Dover Canyon wines, but I did check out their website and discovered that they specialize in Zinfandel and Syrah. 

 

I also found a very interesting story on the background of their label, which features a drawing of a white St. Bernard, named Blue.  Winery owner Dan Panico was given a white St. Bernard named Blue by his mother, when he was 16 years old.  Blue followed Dan everywhere including many trips to the beach, and to Danís favorite hangouts during his college years.  Quoting from the website now: ďIn 1989, at the age of 10, Blue rescued Dan from a killer surf in Santa Cruz.  After watching Danís board sweep up in the air in the rocky surf, with no sign of his master, Blue raced up and down the beach, barking frantically.  Although a strong swimmer, Blue seldom ventured out into the deeper waves because saltwater bothered his ears.  But today Blue threw hygiene to the storming winds and plunged through the streaming waves. Blue pulled Dan, bleeding and knocked unconscious by his own surfboard, to safety, but in the process was knocked against some jagged rocks and broke several ribs.  He healed, but at his advanced age he was never quite the same. 

 

Blue faded away in the summer of 1992, just months before Dan and Ed produced Dover Canyonís first wine, a Cabernet Sauvignon. After drinking two bottles in celebration, Ed painted this portrait and gave it to Dan as a gift, never dreaming that it would become the hallmark of one of the finest new wineries on the horizon.Ē  I donít know about you, but that story makes me want to stop by and try some of the wines in Blueís honor!

 

I also stopped by Frank and Deanís restaurant.  Actually, I was called to stop by, I had entered a contest that they were having to give away a Chevy Tahoe.  One hundred applications were drawn from the many that had been collected, and those 100 lucky people (one of whom wasme) got a chance to throw 5 dice.  Each of the dice had one of the letters from the word Elvis, as well as things like free appetizers, free wine, etc.  Anyone who threw the name Elvis would win the Tahoe.  While nobody threw Elvis that night, Frank tells me that in the nights leading up to the contest, one person did throw the name.  Bad timing, you never want to peak too soon.  However, there were people who won gift certificates, appetizers and wine, and everyone seemed to be having a really good time, as you can tell by the faces of the people in the photos.  Part of the reason for the use of the name Elvis for the contest was the appearance that night was that the entertainment that night was an Elvis tribute.

 

Thereís always something fun going on at Frank and Deanís (Except Sunday and Monday, when theyíre closed).  But they have karaoke on Tuesday nights, Salsa lessons ($5) followed by a Salsa party (no cover) on Wednesday nights, and Thursday to Saturday nights they have dancing to Top 40 music.  The place is filled with memorabilia from the Rat Pack era, the glamour days of Hollywood, etc.  Even the menu is a tribute to the great Hollywood stars, with most of the entrees being named for Hollywood favorites.
