Diner’s Agenda thought the season premiere of The Wire was great, but doesn’t much care for the new theme song.
Monday, January 7
•Om is celebrating its second anniversary by offering a $33 three-course prix fixe dinner until January 23. How sweet of them to give us a present! The menu includes goodies like tuna carpaccio and short rib. Not too shabby! Call (617) 576-2800 to reserve. [Om]
•It’s another one of those super-rare weeks where it’s possible to make a same-day reservation for L’Espalier’s Wine Mondays. Tonight’s theme is “New World Wines for a New Year”. Hmm, why does that sound familiar? As always, the party starts at 7pm and $55 gets you four courses with wine. Call (617) 262-3023 to save your place. [L’Espalier]
•Speaking of miraculous same-day reservations, there seems to still be space for one lucky MP: Boston reader to take class at Stir tonight. Jennifer Pieters of B&G; Oysters will be teaching a class on Chenin Blanc, which is, apparently, the ultimate in winter whites. $105 gets you several samples of wine paired with French fare. Call (617) 423-7817 to nab the last spot. [Stir]
