ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for National Cheeseburger Day, The Capital Grille today announced the fifth annual Wagyu & Wine event from September 12th to November 20th. The signature fall event offers guests the opportunity to experience luxury burger-and-wine pairings in The Capital Grille's lounge.
For $25*, guests can choose from three different Wagyu burgers, accompanied by their choice of a glass of Duckhorn, Cabernet Sauvignon or Goldeneye, Pinot Noir, typically reserved exclusively for enjoying by the bottle.
The gourmet burgers this year include a Wagyu Cheeseburger with Fried Egg and Crisp Onions; a Wild Mushroom Wagyu Cheeseburger with 15-Year Aged Balsamic; and a Caramelized Onion Wagyu Burger with Jarlsberg Cheese.
"Wagyu & Wine is an event our guests look forward to year after year, and this year is no exception," said The Capital Grille's Executive Chef Michael LaDuke. "Using the finest beef available, flawlessly prepared and complemented by the superior ingredients our guests have come to expect, allows us to put an indulgent twist on an American classic."
The Capital Grille's Wagyu & Wine pairings were hand-selected by Advanced Sommelier Brian Phillips, who expertly pairs world-renowned wines with exceptional cuisine.
"We relish the opportunity to offer coveted wines by the glass and Wagyu & Wine uncorks two brilliant wine pairings," added Phillips. "In our fifth year, we looked to select two beautiful wines that could stand up to the silky texture of our Wagyu burgers."
