Chef Mark Graham let me in on one of tonight’s specials at MezzaNotte Ristorante in Guilderland:
Chilean Sea Bass with Sweet Summer Corn, chanterelle mushrooms, and ciopollini. Chef’s wine recommendation: Glenora Riesling (NY Finger Lakes) or Ferrari-Carano Fume Blanc (Sonoma County CA)
Sounds like a winner to me! MezzaNotte is located at 2026 Western Avenue in Albany. Call (518) 689-4433 to get your table.
Chilean Sea Bass? Really?
I thought everyone was aware of this – http://bit.ly/ChileanSeabass
Unless of course Chef Mark has access to the fish that come from the small fishery that is MSC certified. Any chance of you asking him directly. I don’t think he’s taking my calls.
I actually wondered, too, so I asked him this evening. Mark assured me that his vendor meets criteria for sustainability. I didn’t ask about the MSC certification, but he seemed pretty confident that he wasn’t serving something he shouldn’t.
I will have to press him further, but he was rushing out the door for a date with his wife!
And, have you really tried calling him, or were you just being facetious?
I was being facetious. I haven’t even emailed him with my Open Letter to Captial Region Chefs. You happen to have his email address?
