Saltus River Grill celebrated its 10th Anniversary last Thursday with a four course dinner prepared by Chef Brian Waters, wine pairings provided by Advintage Distributors and live jazz with Vic Varner and Friends. Henri Gabriel, owner of Advintage Fine Wine Sales and Distribution based in Charleston, spoke at the upscale restaurant. The first course included a carrot and ginger bisque with butter poached stone crab claws. The second course featured pan roasted halibut with wilted organic spinach, oysters poached in pernod crème and potato gaufrette. The third course included a sous vide and wood grilled barrel cut filet, potato galette, caramelized shallots and Asher blue cheese demi glace. And the meal concluded with a Brandy Alexander tart with Chantilly crème, mint and a chocolate cigarette.
