Special K&L Dinners and Tastings

  • October 1: Regis Camus Master Blender Sake & Champagne Dinner - Join K&L and Regis Camus to celebrate World Sake Day at the exquisite Chateau Hanare in Hollywood. We'll enjoy an unbelievable 5 course Kaiseki meal designed by Chef Abe Hiroki alongside a flight of Mr. Camus' own distinguished creations. Regis Camus was the cellar master for Piper-Heidsieck for more than 15 years before retiring to lead their recently created RARE line of vintage offerings. The award winning winemaker is a living legend among the world's most elite in the business and has recently lent his talents to an incredible new project in Japan. HEAVENSAKE is his new baby and he's taken all the knowledge and expertise of his decades in Champagne and applied it to a new medium. Partnering with some of Japan's most renowned brewers, Regis has meticulously created a line of sake unlike any other. We'll taste through his creations from both France and Japan with this incredible menu: Spanish bluefin tuna & avocado with wasabi soy dressing, kanpachi marinated in white sesame sauce, Hokkaido scallop with summer truffles, assorted sashimi, saikyo miso marinated black cod, lobster shabu shabu hot pot, miyazaki wagyu beef with soup and salmon rice pot and for desert housemade cheesecake with matcha ice cream. Chateau Hanare is located at 8097 Selma Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90046. Valet entrance on Sunset Blvd, but we highly recommend you use a rideshare service to attend. Seating is limited. Don't miss this once in a life time opportunity to dine with a master. BUY YOUR TICKET NOW!!!
  • October 18: Special Bordeaux Tasting in Hollywood with Owner Clyde Beffa Jr!
    Almost 50 years ago, Clyde read a Playboy magazine on the flight to his honeymoon that would change his life forever. The article was all about collecting wine—a novelty at the time—and it sparked an interest that eventually led him to leave his job as a dairy farmer and go into the booze business with his best friend, Todd. The two are still at it today, and Clyde’s passion for Bordeaux has been a driving force in this business. Join him for a very special event—his first time in our Hollywood tasting bar!—where he’ll be pouring an exciting array of vintages with bottlings direct from his own cellar. Meet the man behind the magic and taste some magical wines while you’re at it! Friday, October 18th 5:30 to 7:00PM, $25. Link to purchase tickets to come.
