Seated lunch follows with two courses and the next wine selections. Pairing notes from Nathan and our Chefs will round out the experience.

Truffles and coffee will be served at the conclusion of lunch to add a spring to your step and get you energized to finish your day. In addition, each guest will receive an autographed CD, Between Love and Luck by Badi Assad.
