Seafood Tasting at NOCA

On Thursday, Phoenix’s NOCA will be hosting another fabulous tasting–this time, a tasting of the seafood of renown seafood purveyor, Ingrid Bengis. Bengis provides seafood to some of the nation’s top restaurants: French Laundry, Per Se, Jean George and Le Bernardin, to name a few, as well as NOCA. (Her seafood is out of the water and to Phoenix in a mere 15 hours!) I’m convinced that NOCA has the best scallops in the Valley, so I definitely recommend stopping by for other seafood goodness. The dinner is $60 per person and wine pairings are an additional $25.
