I recently went to a delightful wine dinner at Z'Tejas with Teddy of Fun With Your Food. The fine folks at Z'Tejas were hosting a wine dinner spotlighting the California Winery Clos le Chance. Though neither the food nor the wine were outstanding, we still have a great time with our table mates. In the end, I grew a finer appreciation for Z'Tejas's cuisine. Sometimes they have a winning dish, sometimes not so much. But the things they excel at, Southwest, spicy, pepper infused dishes, they really knock out of the park. None of the food featured here is on their regular menu, but it was all tasty and paired decently with the wine. They do them on a regular basis, and I'd recommend it for a fun date night thats a little out of the ordinary.
