We are cooking king crab legs and steaks tonight. (Does that qualify as surf 'n' turf?)

We will be serving drawn butter with the crab so I'm thinking CA Chardonnay. However, how do pair both crab and steak? Serve both reds and whites? Perhaps serve the crab first, as a separate course?

Champagne.

Pairs very well with both. Ideally, you would go with an older Blancs de Blancs, but really just about any Chmpagne would work.

You can also go for a huge white and a not-so-overpowering red. For example, you can go back and forth between an Aubert/Kistler/Martinelli Chardonnay and a nice Chianti or even a Brunello or Rioja with a little age on it.
