There is magic in the pairing of Asian cuisine and wine of the Western World. You are cordially invited to join us in experiencing the unfolding of its fascination. As an upscale cuisine, the dishes are carefully prepared by our chef using some of best ingredients available in the market. The wines chosen by the sommelier are from some of best producers and terroirs locally, Wood Family Vineyards and Cuda Ridge Wines. Meet and visit with the wine makers throughout the course of the evening. We intend to make it an unforgettable experience of harmony on the table for you.

Uncle Yu’s Nicholas Liang is a vino-singer. His daytime work and passion both lie in creating new dimensions for the palate as a sommelier. He brings his clients unforgettable experiences and a measure of joy, by matching Western wines with Asian food on the table. During nighttime he is a tenor soloist. He sings songs and opera arias by leading composers like Rossini, Bellini, Bach, Franz Schubert and Mozart; composers like Donaudy and Durante; of course, as well as American folk songs such as those composed by Aaron Copland, and Chinese Folk songs.

The Sandra J. Wing Healing Therapies Foundation provides funds so that cancer patients can experience the immediate benefit of complementary therapies to help alleviate the side effects caused by radiation and chemotherapy.

These therapies, which complement traditional cancer treatment, can make a huge difference in the quality of life and recovery of cancer patients. Healing therapies included are acupuncture, acupressure, therapeutic massage, guided/visual imagery, and deep breathing meditation. The Foundation grew out of local resident Sandra Wing's own experiences battling cancer.
