The Renaissance Arlington (Va.) Capital View Hotel invites guests to indulge in a decadent medley of flavors at SOCCi Italian Bar & Kitchen on Nov. 7, as part of the Renaissance Hotels’ Navigator’s Table Dinner Series. Hosted by Executive Chef Devon Capili, restaurant manager Ashley Rosenbaum, and with beverages by Flying Dog Brewery, the special event offers guests a night of indulgence as they savor the culinary team’s signature seasonal dishes.
The specially crafted five-course menu, paired with craft beer from locally based brewery Flying Dog, begins with Lumpia Shanghai Chicken and Shrimp accompanied by a light Dogtoberfest Marzen. The next dish is a Spicy Ahi Tuna Tartare, paired with a Raging Bitch Belgian IPA, followed by Citrus Brine Pork Tenderloin, paired with Blood Orange Ale. Next on offer, are Braised Beef Short Ribs accompanied by the 20th Anniversary Snake Dog IPA. Finally, for dessert, guests can indulge in a delectable Chocolate Espresso Marquis, paired with the Gonzo Imperial Porter.
Born out of Renaissance Hotel’s partnership with acclaimed chef and TV personality Andrew Zimmern, host of the Travel Channels’ Bizarre Food series, the Navigator’s Table Dinner Series is a reflection of the brand’s focus on “Business Unusual.” The table décor, unique food presentation, unexpected touches and hosted conversation all serve to create a culinary event that celebrates the culture and art of gastronomy. Through this, the meal is elevated to become a curated experience that is part TED talk and part culinary discovery.
