Christmas Fine Dining at Home 

Want to have a wonderful Christmas dinner at home but don't have the time to prepare? Celebrate Christmas with a full dinner meal package for 5 people that you can just simply re-heat once everyone is together or with some of our traditional A La Carte dishes and dessert.

Our Executive Chef Yannick Anton has prepared a 4-course Christmas Meal package that includes two succulent appetizers: Butternut Squash Soup and Black Truffle Boudin Blanc.

Main course is accompanied with traditional bread stuffing, mixed vegetables, Yukon potatoe puree, cranberry sauce and Signatures gravy. A delicious "Buche de Noel" dessert concludes the meal package.

Traditional French Christmas favorites such as "tourtiere" (meat pie), "Boudin" (white sausage) and "Buche de Noel" (Christmas Log) can be added to your meal package or purchased individually.
