"Partake" is a new event series at Middendorf's Slidell featuring delectable food and libations. Coming up on Wednesday, July 5, 2023, we'll have a "Red, Wine & Blue" Wine Tasting Dinner. We're loving this fun, patriotic twist featuring vibrant red wine and a four course gourmet meal.  We have much to celebrate because July 4th is also Middendorf’s 89th Anniversary!  Cue the sparklers.


We are now taking reservations for our July Partake Event —  a “Red, Wine & Blue” Wine Tasting Dinner.

The Wine:  In honor of the patriotic holiday, four red wines from across America will be showcased by Mallory Young of Southern Glazer’s Signature Fine Wines & Spirits.   They focus on luxury brands that are considered influencers in the market and among consumers.  Southern Glazer’s is the world’s preeminent distributor of wine and spirits. 

The Food:  Horst Pfeifer had fun creating the menu for this Partake event.  He took classic July 4th foods and gave them an upscale twist.   Horst loves fine dining which may sound peculiar for the owner of Middendorf’s, but he is actually a European Master Chef.  In fact, his previous restaurant was Bella Luna, a very popular fine dining restaurant in the French Quarter.  So, Horst really knows his stuff, and he has an amazing four course gourmet meal planned.
