LOVE BITES: CELEBRATE “ANTI-VALENTINE’S DAY” FEB. 14 WITH A SPECIAL SUNDAY DINNER SERVICE AT CAFÉ MEDINA
Buck the Trend and Take Heart with Live Music and a Five-Course Gourmet Meal Featuring Café Medina’s Trademark Mediterranean-Inspired Cuisine
This year, flip the script on all the hearts, flowers and unmet expectations and join Café Medina to celebrate “Anti-Valentine’s Day” with a communal, all-inclusive feast for singles, couples, friends, family and groups alike.
Beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 14, the eponymous daytime restaurant will mark the occasion with a special dinner service that includes a five-course gourmet menu by Medina Chefs Deniz Tarakcioglu and Adam Perrier, a glass of sparkling wine upon arrival and live music courtesy of “TV Show Band” jazz trio.
“There are just as many people out there who avoid Valentine’s Day as those who embrace it,” says Café Medina Owner Robbie Kane. “We decided to go against the grain this year and host a festive social gathering with a friendly atmosphere, good company and great food.”
