Jardinière Brings Back Popular Friday Holiday Lunches

The December Friday lunches are back at Jardinière starting tomorrow. The restaurant will serve lunch every Friday from 11:30 – 2:00 PM on December 2, 9, 16 and 23rd. See below for the lunch menu offerings and note the “sure to tempt even the pickiest eater” kids menu, which will be served at lunch and dinner time. This is a perfect option for before or after the Nutcracker.
Sounds like such fun that I might even rent a kid for the day!

PS. I just returned from a FAB bubbly tasting here. Sommelier, Jai Wilson (a real sweetie and sooper knowledgeable) has scouted out some stellar sparklers and would be more than happy to help you with your selections.
