June Wine Dinner at Chima with MenuOne of the best parts of traveling is sampling the local cuisines. Paired with local wines, somehow the food just tastes better.

Chima Brazilian Steakhouse on Fort Lauderdale’s tony Las Olas Boulevard invites you to enjoy that experience again, but with some expert assistance. Chima’s recently appointed sommelier Larry Baker makes it his job to know what wine complements which foods the most, and he’s planning a food adventure. Just consider him your taste bud tour guide.

On Wednesday, June 25 at 7 p.m., Mr. Baker will host a Wine & Food Trip Around the World dinner. The evening will feature four courses paired with selections from Chima’s impressive wine cellar.
