Stir The Pot with Jeremiah Langhorne

“Best Mid-Atlantic Chef” heads to the South

Our dinner series, Stir the Pot, which benefits the Southern Foodways Alliance’s documentary initiative, returns this spring at Death & Taxes.

Join us on Sunday, April 7th for a five-course meal with wine pairing by chef Jeremiah Langhorne. Tickets are $150 and available here.

Jeremiah Langhorne is chef and co-owner of The Dabney, located in Washington, D.C. In 2018, he won the James Beard Award for Best Chef: Mid Atlantic, and The Dabney was awarded a Michelin star in 2016, 2017, and 2018. Langhorne worked all over the world, from Charleston to Copenhagen to the mountains of Colorado, before settling in D.C.

Needless to say, this is going to be a phenomenal night, and all in support of one of our most cherished organizations.

Leading Ladies

An evening with the next generation of French winemakers

Join us for a very special dinner service at Death & Taxes on March 25th; we'll be joined by 3 of France's leading winemakers, who all happen to be women who have taken leadership of their families' vineyards. These three powerhouse winemakers--Melanie Pfister (of Domaine Pfister in Alsace); Françoise Ollier (of Domaine Ollier-Taillefer in Faugères); and Françoise Le Calvez (of Château Coupe Roses in Minervois)--will all be in the restaurant as acting guest sommeliers, as we feature their wines in a by-the-glass TAKEOVER.

This is a rare opportunity to try these wines while hearing about them directly from the producer.We’ll be featuring something for everyone: reds, whites, rosés, and even sparkling options.

To further celebrate this incredible display of women in wine, our executive chef Lauren Ivey will be offering a featured menu (alongside our regular menu) that pays homage to women chefs we admire, from Julia Child to Alice Waters. No tickets are required; simply make your reservation here [].

Old World Red Blends For A Month Of Love

February Marrow Magnum Mondays

February is the month of love… at Death & Taxes.

Our Marrow Magnum Monday wine selections this month are all selected from Old World vineyards. We’ve chosen classic, palatable red blends that not only pair with our marrow, but all of our delicious new menu additions as well.

On February 4th, our selection is a Tenuta Monteti, "Caburnio," Bordeaux Blend from Italy. This savory Super-Tuscan blend from the seaside winery of Tenuta Monteti is silky, smooth, and beautifully aromatic.

On February 11th, we’ll feature “Brezeme” Cote-du-Rhones, by Eric Texier.  Through all organic and minimal intervention winemaking, this cutting edge producer gives us a 100% Syrah wine from one of the top sites in the area.  It is perfectly ripe, tasting like the summer's best blackberries dusted with black pepper and licorice.

On February 18th, our choice is Château de Parenchere, Bordeaux Supérieure. This wine is an intense red, with notes of dark fruit and elegant tannins; and is an example of the versatile wines coming out of Bordeaux that are immediately intended for the dinner table.

On February 25th, we’ll end the month with Domaine Pelican, "Trois Cépages," a blend of three grapes: Pinot Noir, Trousseau & Poulsard. From France’s easterly, Jura, this selection is full of bright red fruit flavors and zippy acidity; and will bring new meaning to food versatility.

You’ll truly be feeling all the love this February, with our wide range of Old World blends. Make your Monday reservation(s) here.

People’s Cocktail February 2019

Join us on Monday, February 18th, for the return of People’s Cocktail--a competitive cocktail fundraising event at Fox Liquor Bar.

The premise is simple: each of our bartenders will make a featured drink and pick a favorite charity. You, the people, come to drink, and we will donate the proceeds of the featured cocktails to the charity picked by the bartender with the most popular drink. That’s right, every drink you order equals one vote for that bartender’s charity.

But what good is competitive cocktailing without snacks? Joining us for a good cause is guest chef Teddy Diggs. He’ll be featuring a preview menu from his upcoming restaurant, Coronato, a Roman-style pizza spot opening in Carrboro later this year. Think rosemary and sea salt foccacia, fava falafel with herbs, lemon, and yogurt, and several pizza options to choose from (with all proceeds also going to the winning charity.)

Craft cocktails, craft Roman pizza, and a charitable cause… this is an event you can’t miss. Mark your calendars and head to Fox for this night of fun and good-hearted rivalry.
