August 15 Chef Challenge Menu

Duck A L'Orange: A Round 2 Contender

On Monday, August 15th Avenues Bistro will showcase its first ever Chef Challenge dinner. In this new monthly dinner series, two chefs will prepare their best three course meal. Guests will taste each course and vote on their favorite, enjoying a gourmet six-course meal. For the first Chef Challenge, Avenues Bistro Owner Joe Birch will take on his premiere Avenues team of Chefs. We cannot reveal which chef will be preparing which dish, however, we can share with you a sneak peek of Monday’s menu.

WOW, what a lineup! But we’re sure you’re asking, “What about the wine?” Since Avenues Bistro has a staff with several Certified Sommeliers from the Court of Master Sommeliers, the Bistro is putting their Somms to work at the Chef Challenge. At the August 15th event, each table will have their own Sommelier waiting on them. To make the evening more stellar, all of Avenues Bistro’s premium wines will be available in half-glass format and bottles are 20% off! This approach will expand the wine experience by encouraging a pairing as planned by the Sommelier who will have experienced the cuisine right before it comes to you.

If you haven’t realized yet, this is an evening you are not going to want to miss. The August 15th Chef Challenge is sold out. However, do not fret, by signing up for Avenues Bistro’s email newsletter, you will get the firsthand scoop and how to secure your seat for next month’s Chef Challenge. Plus, we’ll send you a coupon for a free dessert with your next meal. It’s easy to sign up.
