What goes well with vodka? You might say "anything!" but there is, of course, an art to both mixing cocktails and pairing them with food. A dinner hosted by Grey Goose held at Checkers Downtown at the Hilton Checkers tomorrow night will give guests an opportunity to experience a five-course menu executed by Checkers Downtown's new Chef de Cuisine, Dave Baker, paired with Grey Goose.Diners will also get to learn about vodka and pairing from Grey Goose brand ambassador Guillaume Jubien, who will be on hand to discuss the liquor while you sip the cocktails and taste the food.

The evening begins with a 6:30 pm reception featuring the Motown Cocktail (Grey Goose Le Citron, Peach Liqueur, Passion Fruit Syrup, and Apple Juice), created by Jubien and assisted by Checkers Downtown mixologist, Tyler Dow and mixologist and Youngs Market Company Key Account Specialist, Matt Martinez behind the bar. Dinner will begin shortly after and Jubien and Baker will discuss the food and cocktail pairing for each course.

The menu is priced at $80 per person (not including tax and gratuity) and the dinner and presentation begins at 7:00pm. Reservations can be made by emailing Tyler Dow or by calling 213-891-0526. Check out the whole menu after the jump.
