Tomorrow night Rob Marzinsky and the Fitler Dining Room (2201 Spruce St.) crew are welcoming David McDuff of David Bowler Wine for a dinner featuring a menu and wine pairings from the Savoie region of France. Nestled in the snow-covered Alps, bordering both Italy and Switzerland, the Savoie dinner couldn't be more appropriate weather-wise and is full of warming fare like a spiced moulard duck breast and billi-bi, a creamy mussel soup with saffron, fennel and citrus. And of course being a serious cheesemaking hub, the cheeses of Savoie are well represented with a gruyere souffle and a camembert ice cream in the dessert course. Beginning with a glass of sparking Montagnieu Brut the menu is paired with a selection of lovely glasses of Savoie whites.
There are still a few seats left for the 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. seatings, reserve your spot at the table ($85 per person) by calling Fitler at 215-732-3331.
