In addition to an upcoming wine pairing, Ravine co-owner Joel Miller has announced the debut of a fresh, new website for the restaurant. Along with information about Ravine and local purveyors, you’ll also find links to a new winter menu and Wednesday tapas lineup.
As for the next wine pairing, scheduled for Wednesday, January 30, at 6:00 p.m., Miller and Shanna Flaschka have chosen the theme “Opposites Attract” and will be pairing wines with foods not typically considered to be a match.
Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 662-234-4555. Cost is $30 per person.
A group of Ole Miss students have been working on a project called Hungry Oxford recently. If you haven’t checked it out yet, do yourself a favor and go to the website here. Over a six week period they’ve been assigned to cover several eateries around Oxford and they’re doing a fabulous job!
Drop them a note if you like what they’re doing and maybe one or two will be encouraged to open their own restaurant or pursue food journalism.
I just came across a fun group on Facebook called Restaurant History of Oxford, Mississippi. And for those of us who haven’t lived here all of our lives, it’s an interesting page to read about all of the old restaurants that used to be here in town (Danver’s, Smitty’s, Joe’s Hamburgers, Sloth’s, Mr. Oliver’s Pink Crustacean, etc.). The list goes on and on.
Check it out when you get a chance, and add your own memories to the list.
