Zely and Ritz has two wine dinners coming up. One is a staff favorites; the other features a special guest.

The staff has long wanted to do a Staff Favorites Dinner where each staff member picks their own favorite dish and pairs it with their favorite wine.  Chef Sarig has taken all of these favorites and turned them into an incredible menu for a wonderful wine dinner evening Sept. 9.
