Five Course Chocolate Tasting Dinner

For those of you paying attention, you've seen the e-poll at the top of the blog here asking for your input on the upcoming Chocolate Tasting Dinner. Well, the vote so far seems to be right down the middle, but upon speaking to some of you in person I've decided to splurge and go all out.

Available exclusively on the evening of Thursday, February 14th (which is conveniently Valentine's Day!) we will offer a full-service candle-lit prix fixe five-course chocolate tasting dinner. That's a lot of adjectives, you say? Well lets break it down!

For $45 per couple (that's only $22.50 per person for those of you who aren't good with mental math) you and a friend can enjoy a classy evening out with plenty of food for two. Prix Fixe, fancy-French pronounced prē-fēks, means that it's a fixed five course dinner at the set price, but there will also be an optional artisan cheese and meat platter and of course a few beverages to enjoy. And chocolate tasting? Well, I'm sure no one needs clarification on this one, but for the record the meal will follow a traditional five-course format (Amuse Bouche or Appetiser, Soup, Salad, Entree, and Dessert) and each offering will feature chocolate as an flavor element. Although the menu is still in development, I can say I've completed the finishing touches on the Baked Brie en Croute with Cocoa-Veal Demiglace. Exciting, no? Well we think so and expect this event to sell out (and we can only accept 24 couples) so don't wait until the last minute to sign up.

There will be seatings at 6.30 and 8.30, RSVP with credit card required. Email to reserve your space.

Should one have dinner and then come to Eclipse for the Chocolate Tasting Dinner or should one treat this as a dinner itself?

This is a tasting dinner, so while the portions are smaller, I really don't expect anyone to walk away with an appetite. Plus, there will be an optional artisan cheese and salami platter before the meal and a great selection of speciality beverages available exclusively for the event!
