Wish Bistrot La Minette A Happy Fourth Birthday With A Special Anniversary Menu Offered September 4-6
This year, acclaimed French restaurant Bistrot La Minette celebrates its fourth anniversary, and you’re invited.
Starting tonight, September 4, through Thursday, September 6, indulge in four courses for just $30. A wine pairing costs just an additional $15.
In the past, Chef Peter Woolsey has had a $22 menu for the restaurant’s second year anniversary and a $30 menu for its third year. With the knowledge that that trend would eventually lead to cost-prohibitive $70 and $80 menus, Chef Woolsey is treating his patrons this year with a very affordable $30 feast.
There will be some $4 drink specials available as well to help you toast to this milestone. Note that the restaurant’s regular menu will not be available for these nights.
Check out the full menu, below. Call (215) 925-8000 for reservations.
Also note that September is the last month of Bistrot La Minette’s popular “Movies Under the Stars” series. For the last month of this season, you can watch French films (with subtitles) outside the garden courtyard on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Schedule is online.
