 Guests will start with a delicate Albert Bichot Cremant Rose. Chef LeBlanc’s first   course of Spring Corn Cappuccino will pair with Lorenza Rose. A zesty Ricotta   Gnocchi will be enjoyed with Elk Cove Rose of Pinot Noir, then a delicate Sea Bass “Acqua Pazza” will pair with La Spinetta Rose di Sangiovese. A final dessert course of a Strawberry Rhubarb Crostata from Pastry Chef Amber Billingsley with honey-lavender gelato will pair with a surprise selection to finish the evening.


“Rose season is my ABSOLUTE favorite! We’re excited to welcome spring with one of the year’s first outdoor rose events.” says Hillary Merrill, general manager. “After pushing through the tough winter season, rose represents all the great things that spring has to offer.  It’s a chance to try our favorite vintners’ new releases, and more than anything – it’s about getting back outside, because we ALL know roses are best when enjoyed in the open air!”
Stanza is located at 454 East, 300 South in Salt Lake. Reservations can be made by calling 801-746-4441, [email protected] or by
