Cupid is planning early! Please join Chef Jacques at one of Open Table’s Top 100 Restaurants in America for Romance, on Saturday, February 18th at 11:00am for the ever popular and always sold out lively Valentine’s cooking demonstration and luncheon experience, this year featuring drum roll… Truffles!

Truffles: “the Black Diamond of French Cuisine” is considered one of the world’s most potent aphrodisiacs. Preparing a repast for your special someone is an act of love! Our truffle, seafood and carnivorous menu features a decadent gratin of local bay scallops & truffles, classic Tournedos Rossini, with of course, a rich truffle sauce. It wouldn’t be a proper celebratory Valentine’s Day without sumptuous chocolate, as we feature Chef’s award-winning Chocolate Truffle Soufflé, with Chocolate Sauce, but of course!

The event will include bubbles and of course, fine French wines to top off an incredible Valentine’s Day afternoon delight. Cheers to romance,, and à bien tôt!
