Cri of the Tiger: Let’s Pop Bottles of Vintage Cristal Brut for Bastille Day!

Cristal 2

The Raleigh’s Tiger Room will become a playground for bubbles on Bastille Day.

Down the north stairwell, deep in The Raleigh Miami Beach’s lower levels lay buried treasures, golden, shimmering and ready to be unsheathed on Bastille Day.  Break out your finest sabers (for Eric Larkee, it’s his iPhone! There is a video to prove this, somewhere…) because Tuesday, July 14 at 7pm, vintage Cristal Brut and more bubbles from Champagne house Louis Roederer are coming out to play in The Tiger Room with Restaurant Michael Schwartz.

Join Charles Fournier of Louis Roederer to celebrate with a wine dinner to rally the best of wine dinners!  $150 includes vintage Cristal Brut welcome toast, 5 passed hors d’oeurves and 5 plated courses all paired with Roederer wines, as well as tax and gratuity.  $375 includes all of the above and adds a bottle of vintage Cristal Brut to take home.  Trust us, it’s a Ba-steal.  Tickets are now live HERE with the following menu:
