Valentine’s Day 2016  | The Dining Studio

 The first of our Sunday Pop-Up Dinners is coming!

Valentine's Day is it!  It is going to be fantastic, intimate, communal and the best way to celebrate in town!

Imagine it:  Easy parking (no valet worries, no meters, no ramps), champagne welcome, passed appetizers, communal seating, no waiting for your table, no rush to give your table to someone else, flowers, candlelight, tour de force 5 course menu with a free drink and cash bar........ahhhhhhh....finally a Valentine's Day celebration with a heart!  We are offering 46 seats in our Dining Studio (private restaurant) to our favorite people (you!).  Philip and I will be here as well as the rest of our talented crew to create the most effortless holiday of the season.  There will a cash bar replete with fantastic, hand-picked wine, beer and cocktails.

The tickets are on sale right now on Eventbrite for $70.00 per person.  The Chef's Table is already sold out.
