NOM: Wild Game Dinner at Tristan 2/16 to benefit SEWE

Tristan beet restaurant review

Tristan's Beet Salad is to die for.

If you haven’t been to Tristan lately, you have no excuse.

Chef Nate Whiting is a dedicated craftsman of fine cuisine.  They have a fantastic menu nightly.  They serve a great brunch.  There’s even half-priced bottles of wine every Monday and Tuesday nights AND complimentary valet!

For you adventurous meat eaters, their upcoming Wild Game Dinner sounds incredible.  There are dishes that even I don’t know what it is, but I know I want it.  Plus the first course is an heirloom beet salad, and if you read the profile on Chef Nathan Thurston of Ocean Room, you know that I love beets.  Tristan has a fantastic beet salad.

Let me give you a few words to salivate over:

Chef Nate Whiting of Tristan

quail. black truffle. braised kale. lemon ‘caviar.’ risotto. pheasant. roasted boar. smoked grapes.  goat cheese. huckleberry cobbler.


Make your reservations for their February 16th Wild Game Dinner now.  $100 + per person.  All inclusive.  Remember that valet?  ‘I can’t find a parking spot’ is not an issue anymore!  Call 843.534.2155 to make sure you don’t miss a mouth-watering moment.

Tristan is collaborating with local cheese purveyors Goat. Sheep. Cow. and Vidalco Wine will provide the wine pairings.  Dinner is begins at 7 pm.  Five percent of ticket sales will support Southeastern Wildlife Expo, February 17 – 19, 2012.

It seems like the 2011 Southeastern Wildlife Expo was just yesterday, but it’s already time to announce the Featured Artists for the 2012 SEWE!

Meet them:

Dustin Van Wechel left his advertising job in 2002 to devote all his attentions to his art work.  Dustin was named the 2011 SEWE Best in Show, along with many other prestigious awards and shows across the U.S.  He paints in a looser style, with plenty of light and color.  Dustin lives in Gilbert, Arizona.

Don Rambadt completed his BFA in Sculpture in 1995 and began working at a Milwaukee foundry.  In 2002, he left to focus solely on his own artwork and participating in shows, and has been included in museums and exhibitions across the country.  His abstracted sculptures are based on completely correct anatomy.

Make sure you put the 2012 SEWE on your calendar–February 17 – 19, 2012!
