Valentine’s Day prix fixe dinner (three nights)

Vintage ValentineOkay lovers, we know what you want — a tantalizing and romantic meal thoughtfully prepared and served in a warm and inviting setting to spur the spirit of St. Valentine in your hearts.

And we are more than prepared to deliver!

At AVA this Valentine’s Day Weekend (Thursday through Saturday nights), in addition to our regular menu, we’re offering two Valentine’s Day prix fixe menu options to meet a range of budgets and food preferences.

Option one is three courses, and option two is five courses. Both have vegetarian choices available for each course. Our regular vegan menu is available on all nights.

In addition to the options below, I will have instructed my servers on how to best advise you on excellent wine pairing choices (to be purchased separately), and, if desired, I’m always available to help you pick out a special red, white, or sparkling wine from our extensive list to make your occasion soar!

Reservations are not necessary, but for a guaranteed seat, they are strongly encouraged during this three-day period.
