LIOCO Wine Dinner – April 18th

In 2005 Matt Licklider and Kevin O’Connor embarked on a journey into the soul of California wine. Their winery, LIOCO, was defined by their keen ability to source fruit from the state’s most iconic vineyards, and by the deft hand of their talented wine maker John Raytek. The resulting wines captured the imagination of sommeliers everywhere. LIOCO can be found on the best wine lists from London to New York and Los Angeles to Tokyo.

On April 18th join us at Kevin’s acclaimed Santa Monica restaurant aestus for an intimate wine maker dinner hosted by LIOCO’s founders. Chef Andrew Bettita will create a seasonal menu sourced exclusively from the Santa Monica’s Farmers Market. The wine pairings will be selected by Matt & Kevin and will include current releases as well as special wines from our library and magnum.

Sunday Italian Supper

Growing up in New York City aestus owner, Kevin O’Connor, enjoyed an authentic Italian meal with his family every Sunday evening. Taking inspiration from this familial tradition, aestus serves Sunday Italian Supper weekly. The menu varies based on chef Dru’s latest finds from the local farmers market. Begin with a house made antipasti plate served family style, next a choice of a fresh green salad or soup followed by main course selection of a grilled fish, rustic chicken entree, or delicious pasta. Finish the night off with a quintessential Italian dessert. Kevin will also be highlighting Italian wines that complement the menu.
