Beggar's Banquet

Another great place to dine and wine in campus town of East Lansing, Beggar's Banquet is located just across the street from MSU campus, right off Grand River Ave. The restaurant offers elegant dining in a casual atmosphere. And I am always happy with their service every time I visit. The staffs are friendly and attentive.

Opened its doors in 1973, Beggar's has a nice selection of wines! Their Wednesday's 1/2 off bottles of wine night has been very popular -- you might want to be there early to beat the crowd.
We had 2006 Wildhurst Reserve, a sophisticated Chardonnay with rich, ripe, core fruit flavors. As described in the vineyard's portfolio, "it is soft yellow-gold in color with a nose of apple pie, lemon drops and lime. On the palate you will taste apples, tropical fruits, vanilla and smoky oak." The wine does have a nice and pleasing finish.

Well, we were there on Thursday -- and it was a 1/2 off Appetizer Night. Though we tried to convince our server it was Wednesday, he didn't fall for that.. However, he recommended a nice wine that all of us ladies --Lynne, Beth, Lisa, and I, enjoyed. And then, we agreed that we should try their Baked Brie appetizer next time!
