With an indulgent eight-course wine-paired meal against the backdrop of the Hermosa Inn, the "Last Meal at Lon's" doesn't seem a terrible way to face the end of the world. In addition to courses such as smoked salmon and estate American caviar, seared Hudson Valley foie gras and black truffle risotto, the meal comes paired with luxurious libations including Perrier-Jouët "Grand Brut" and Domaine Chandon rosé.
