Prix Fixe Tasting Dinners

Choco-friends and -philes! The photos are back from our recent Summer Seafood Chocolate Tasting Dinner and they look pretty tasty thanks to my friend Kaleb at Kaleb Scott Photographs. He and his assisants were in to enjoy the faire and shoot each plating as they debuted from the kitchen.

If you missed the dinner, we have already planned our next line-up. Exclusively for Saturday, August 23rd with seatings at 4.5, 6.5, & 8.5pm for $35 guests will enjoy a Five Couse Pan-Asian Dinner. Organized by country, this one should be a lot of fun:

Vietnam: Fresh Spring Rolls with Spicy Black Bean-Chocolate Sauce
Thailand: White Chocolate-Coconut Milk Curry Soup with Lemongrass and Tomato
China: Stir-fried Long Beans with Cocoa Nibs
Japan: Sake & Cocoa-Marinated Beef with Black Sesame Rice

As always, space is limited so RSVP today. Email or call 619.578.2984. We hold tables with a credit card and accept cancelations up to 48 hrs prior to the dinner without a charge.

Until then... enjoy some mouth-watering pics from our last:
