FoodWire: Thursday Night Tour de France at La Dolce Via
The cost is $40 per person ($50 with three flights of wine), which includes dessert prepared by Marcia Sindel, La Dolce Via's owner and resident baking genius. Seating is limited to 25, so call 314-534-1699 to make your reservation.
The Tour de France is part of an ongoing series of Thursday dinners at La Dolce Via. Cuffie will plan the themes and menus based on what's available at local farmers' markets, but Chris, the cafe's manager, has hinted that there may be an art dinner in the future, featuring "artistic" food in the manner of Chicago's Alinea and its imitators -- though Chris promises that, unlike those imitators, "Ours will taste good" -- and artwork by local artists for sale. Details to follow -- like, as soon as a date is set.
