On Saturday, October 6, Dana Fritsch had the meal of a lifetime. The winner of the
Filet of Dreams Sweep-Steaks presented by
Smith & Wollensky, he and three guests dined with none other than former Boston Red Sox All-Star Nomar Garciaparra. The winner and guests were hosted by General Manager David Doyle and Executive Chef Matt King at
Smith & Wollensky Atlantic Wharf.
Fritsch, who resides in Manchester, NH, grew up in Boston playing baseball and going to Red Sox games with his dad, Michael. A huge fan–even his email address incorporates the team name–he never imagined when he clicked on the sweeps ad on MLB.com that he’d be selected the winner out of more than 89,000 entries. Fritsch, his dad and their dates enjoyed a fabulous evening.
Smith & Wollensky President Michael Feighery and VP of Marketing Kim Lapine kicked off the evening with a champagne toast to the winner. Chef Matt King presented the group with a lamb amuse bouche, follwed by the Shellfish Bouquet to share. The guests enjoyed their favorite cut of steak paired with Smith & Wollensky “Private Reserve” wine and dinner concluded with a sampling of desserts.
Special thanks to our partner MLB.com and Nomar Garciaparra for a great evening!
