Roses Smell Fine
Candy Tastes Sweet
But a Romantic Repast
Is a Much Better Treat
Please join us on Tuesday, Valentine’s Eve, February 13th at 6:30 pm for a lovely dinner paired with music and Champagne at L’Auberge Chez François, one of OpenTable’s 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in America.
While Champagne is popularly thought of as a wine for special occasions, its true fans know that it is made in a range of styles, and complements a greater variety of dishes than any other. Mark Luna of Roanoke Wine Company will be introducing three magical wines from boutique Champagne producers, while Chef Jacques has conceived two tasting menus – one of them vegetarian – to complement them.
Your celebration begins with the romantic music of Classical Guitarist, Alexander Barnett, a Baltimore-based musician who performs an extensive repertoire of music including classical and jazz pieces. With candlelight, exquisite cuisine and Champagne, not to mention our passionflower cocktail to start, we’ve assembled all the ingredients for a wonderful and memorable experience.
Remember, love begins in the kitchen!
