Love is in the Air… a Valentine's Dinner by Chefs Pajo Bruich & Mark Lieberman
Pssst...So... have you made plans for the big day?
You know, it's only a few weeks away... are you really going to do what you did last year and wait until everything is all booked and look like a total screw up...Again!? Are you looking for a special/unique/romantic idea that doesn't involve chain restaurants with a red blinky buzzer and a cattle herd line out the door?
I can help you with a suggestion. A delicious answer to your amorous culinary prayers... If you were my Valentine and wanted to impress me, I would suggest the "Love is in the air…" dinner.
Not enough reason? OK, well... have you seen how pretty the food is on the plate? Each course is like a valentine. Also, not only is the food Pajo creates pleasing to the eye, but an experience to the palette. Oh yeah, and he just happens to work with closely with the Sommelier formerly ofThe French Laundry, Anani Lawson.
Anyway, Pajo's newest venture is called The Private Table. Check out the website's trailer here. Pretty sweet, huh?

You can reserve your tables here. I would do it sooner than later because since the Chef is on the cover of Sac Mag, it will probably sell out completely. You heard it here first! Roses not included, but preferred. ;)
