Smooth Jazz And Fine Dining – Plate & Vine

NYE

Plate & Vine is dedicated to your & our sustainability…

…which is the reason we carefully source the ingredients we serve. Virtually all of our meat and produce comes from sustainable farms and ranches using the most responsible practices. Most are local and many are organic. We are proud to work with fellow artisans and purveyors throughout Northern California and the Bay Area. Locally-Sourced ingredients make our Regionally-Inspired menu items more flavorful, authentic, healthy, and sustainable.

The thing about freshness is that it’s fleeting. Use an ingredient too soon, or too late, and you don’t capture it at the very pinnacle of its flavor. It is around this very basic concept that we created Plate & Vine, a uniquely California-style restaurant dedicated to using locally-sourced foods in most things we make.

Local foods, you see, aren’t frozen, picked before they’re ripe for shipping or transported thousands of miles. They are, instead, fresh, organic, sustainable and grown in some of the most fertile soil in the world. If the experience of choosing foods from your own garden and preparing them yourself that very day could be turned into a restaurant – Plate & Vine would be that restaurant.

So eat, drink and enjoy the treasures of Contra Costa County and the Greater Bay Area. Because unless you’re from here, odds are you traveled farther than your meal did. Enjoy! Join us on Tuesday evening Dec 31st for a delicious dinner, live entertainment, champagne toast at midnight, and even options to stay overnight! David Correa & Cascada perform at New Year’s Eve dinner.

Brian Culbertson – The Christmas Song

TheChristmasSong

With the holiday season on his mind, contemporary jazz-R&B star Brian Culbertson recently took a break from recording his forthcoming “Another Long Night Out” album, sat down at the Mason & Hamlin grand piano in his studio and played a stark, emotionally stirring rendition of “The Christmas Song.” Enjoying his newfound freedoms as an independent recording artist, Culbertson recorded the seasonal classic and put it on iTunes (http://bit.ly/BCChristmasSong), Amazon (http://bit.ly/bcChristmasSong)  and other major digital outlets.

“It is a solo piano piece of an arrangement I did many years ago. I have performed it on my Christmas tours, but had never recorded it until recently,” said Culbertson of the heartfelt, contemplative beauty. “Being able to spontaneously record and then swiftly release something new for fans is one of the energizing perks of the new music industry.”

Culbertson’s first full-length indie release and 14th album overall, “Another Long Night Out” is slated for release in late February. The project is a reimaging of his debut album, “Long Night Out,” which will mark its 20th anniversary in February. Culbertson, a multi-instrumentalist who wrote the eleven songs and played most of the instruments on the original album that he recorded in his crowded Chicago apartment while he was a 20-year-old student at DePaul University, is producing the set featuring performances by Lee Ritenour, Russ Freeman, Jonathan Butler, Rick Braun, Candy Dulfer, Eric Marienthal, Chuck Loeb, Steve Lukather and Paul Jackson Jr. along with a stellar collective of contemporary jazz musicians and a 33-piece orchestra playing arrangements by David Benoit.

Additional information about Culbertson, who will bring in the New Year on stage with his band at a New Year’s Eve Gala at the Hyatt Regency in Huntingdon Beach, Calif., is available at www.BrianCulbertson.me.
