Happy Australia Day 2018!

We all deserve a break from snow and wind-chill concerns… what better way than to transport ourselves down under to Australia for the island nation’s summer holiday celebration AUSTRALIA DAY.  Penn Avenue Fish accepted our challenge to deliver a dinner worthy of a summer coastal gathering and we paired their inspired cuisine with some rare, tasty wines.
