Valentine’s Day Sunday
Today in France (as here) Valentine’s Day involves roses and chocolate and
notes that say Je t'aime. Ever since Saint Valentine died for love so long ago, sweethearts have been proclaiming their undying devotion on February 14th.
In the cobbled streets of ancient Paris and villages of Provence prospective lovers,
who chanced to live in homes that faced each other, would “call out” to one another and would pair off if sparks ignited. Unfortunately, spurned ladies often lit sparks of their own, yelling insults and building bonfires of their unrequited loves’ effigies.
We invite you to join us at Vincent’s to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your lover (if you want to conjure up cupid) or any special person(s) with a culinary valentine.
During Trois et Trois on Valentine's Week, Chef Vincent offers an enticing Surf and Turf entrée prepared for two: Grilled California Lobster Tail with Tarragon Glaze, Black Angus Filet grilled to your preference, served with Potato Gratin and Steamed Asparagus finished with Hollandaise Sauce. For those celebrating on Saturday, guests may order from a special four-course Prix Fixe Menu or choose to order à la Carte. On Sunday, Valentine’s Day, Vincent’s has planned a five-course Prix Fixe Valentine’s Menu that is sure to please the most discriminating tastes.
