More than a few restaurants in Honolulu offer special wine dinners, pairing different wines with each course of the meal. Less often, you’ll come across a beer dinner — which, you guessed it, is just like a wine dinner, except beer is the beverage of choice.
At Apartment3, however, executive chef Bob McGee opted to partner with Better Brands’ master mixologist Joey Gottesman and launch “Munch,” a new, monthly three-course meal that matches McGee’s food with Gottesman’s cocktails. The featured liquor at last Thursday’s kickoff dinner was rum; next month’s menu will focus on tequila, while vodka will be the booze of choice in October.
According to an e-mail about the dinner, the cost is $45 per person — plus tax and 20 percent gratuity, which comes out to $56 per person — with a 48-hour cancellation notice and no-show fee in effect. Dinner “starts promptly” at 6:30 p.m. and only 25 seats are available. Call 955-9300 for reservations.
