Fire Up at L'Albatros

When: Tue., July 26 2011

The pleasures of a good cigar are deeply personal, says Brandon Chrostowski, sommelier at L'Albatros Brasserie; pair them with the rich complexity of a fine rum, and the flavors can be colossal. That's the theory behind tonight's doings on the L'Albatros patio. "I've been sourcing unique rare rums from all around the Caribbean — mostly from Martinique, a French island where spirits adhere to the same strict standards as wine and cheese in France," he tells us. "And cigar aficionado Craig Anthony has selected some very small-production cigars that will make the night a dream!" Participants at the $65 soirée get to choose two of the five cigars, which Chrostowski will custom-pair with four rums. Appetizers, a roast pig, and petite sweeties round out the menu. The fun begins at 6:15 p.m. Reservations are required at 216-791-7880, and the rain date is August 2. Find out more at albatrosbrasserie.com. The restaurant is at 11401 Bellflower Rd. in University Circle. — Cicora
