For your main course choose from chicken or fresh wild-caught salmon Oscar served with hollandaise covered crab and asparagus, rice pilaf, mixed roasted vegetables, and warm rolls with butter. No alcohol is served on the premises, therefore each table will enjoy White Zinfandel from Napa Valley’s Sutter Home Vineyards since 1800’s Fre’ de-alcoholized wine and Chardonnay White Wine from Monterry, CA’s J. Lohr Vineyards’ Ariel de-alcoholized wine since 1985. To round out the evening, finish with a dessert Phantom of the Opera sampler.
