Are You Brave Enough for Jardin’s 10-Course “Secret Dinner”?

If you’ve never attended a wine dinner or tasting dinner, put that on your calendar now. Summer is a great time to explore different restaurant options, and a prix-fixe dinner allows you to explore the menu in a way a regular dinner wouldn’t. I think once you try one of these dinners, you’ll be hooked on them. Have fun!

Jardin’s 10-course tasting dinners start May 23

Last year, Jardin executive chefs/co-owners Jordan Lerman and Stephanie Cohen debuted their regular tasting dinners during summer months. The dinners were notable for their multiple courses, the fact that they sold out rather quickly, and of course, the excellent food and service at the restaurant. The good news is that these dinners are back, starting May 23, with a 10-course “secret dinner,” which means you’ll find out what you’re eating when you show up. Cost is $150 per person, with wine pairings available for $50 more. Reservations required.
