As promised, before we close at the end of the month, we’re having some special events. And what’s more special than a nice romantic dinner in celebration of Valentine’s Day?
To that end, we’re offering three tier options for prix fixe Valentine’s Day dinners — a three course, four course, or five course menu. For each of these there’s an optional wine pairing but all tiers include a sparkling wine toast in the prix fixe price.
And since sweethearts can’t always go out on one particular day to celebrate, were offering this special Valentine’s dinner Thursday through Sunday nights this week during the special hours of 5-8pm. That’s right, we’re not usually open on a Sunday, nor do we usually open this early and stop seating at 8, but this year we are!
As with most special dinners, reservations are a must. Call us at 540.886.2851 to make yours.
Every tier includes a vegetarian option, but we’re sorry, we’re not able to offer vegan choices for this dinner. And one final note — this is the only menu we’ll be offering on those nights except for some appetizers and our drinks menu. Our regular menu will otherwise not be available except on Wednesday.
But on to the good stuff. What’s on the menu? Well get watered up because here it is:
Tier One — $45 for 2
First Course — Choose Creamy Beet Soup or Spinach Salad or House Salad
Second Course — Veggie Lasagna or Curried Chicken with Ginger Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Third Course — Sticky Toffee Pudding for Two
Wine Pairing $10 per person
Tier Two — $75 for 2

We hope you’ll find all of this enticing and we know we’ll be ready for you with a romantic setting, excellent food, and superior wines. We’re looking forward to seeing you and your loved one this week and Happy Valentine’s Day!
