A NEIGHBORHOOD BISTRO EVENING
We suggest Café Laurier. Laurier means "bay leaf" in Francais, and this aromatic herb appears on the Laurier logo and signage. The theme is simplicity, so the interior is dressed in bold color, contemporary art, chrome chairs, sleek tables and table wear. The fare is New American bistro and the chef has created a special four course menu for Valentine's evening. Service begins at 5:30 pm and will wrap up around 11:00 pm. $70/person includes a glass of champagne, but is exclusive of tax, gratuity and additional alcoholic beverages. Reservations required.
