Spoon Service in Vegas

“You’ve heard of bottle service, but spoon service? Yes, that’s what’s going on in Las Vegas right now. Top customers are being spoon-fed Essencla by Royal Tokaji on a hand-crafted crystal spoon. Essencia, the world’s oldest dessert wine, is made only in select years in the Tokaj region of northeastern Hungary. Essencia takes six to eight years to ferment into wine. ln Las Vegas, Adem Sash, Director of Wine at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House, presents a crystal spoonful of Essencia accompanied by market-fresh berries dusted with sugar to add a note of color to the plate. He has also created a special table mat with a history of the centuries-old Essencia wine. Sash notes that very few people have even heard of Essencia before they see it offered at his establishment. But customers can’t stop talking about this rare experience once they’ve tried it.”
