This is worth noting. Looks like a fantastic menu, nice wine pairings, great price.
No affiliation, just saying, if you're in the area might be worth a visit.

Not sure about the Salmon with the Carmenere- but if I were nearbye I would definitely stop by... if for that dessert pairing alone.
Need some contact info though, like where Legal Sea Foods actually is ;).

Legal Sea Foods is located at 2001 International Drive in McLean, VA. This is the Tysons Galleria location.

Definitely looks like a fun evening, but I, too, wonder why Carmenere took over the entire meal after the appetizers. Does the winery not have any whites besides the SB?
