Cost: $175 excluding tax and gratuity, for a total of $224 per person.

Please join Chef Jacques and our team on Thursday, February 17th at 6pm, for a vinous and culinary tour of Le Jardin de la France (France’s Garden), the Loire Valley. Much of the country’s finest produce as well as wine is grown there, and the river – over 1000km long – is also the site of many wonderful châteaux, home to France’s aristocracy (before the Revolution, bien sûr).

After a brief reception featuring Chef’s seasonal hors d’oeuvres and a crisp glass of Muscadet from the Nantais region, we will sit down to a guided tasting of three exceptional single-vineyard Sancerres, led by our head sommelier, Alex Bardsley. Chef Jacques has curated a delectable culinary repast paired with a Montlouis and a Chinon from the Touraine.

Join us or an evening of fabulous French wine and cuisine! Very limited seating; early reservation encouraged. Merci beaucoup and see you there!
