Coming Soon: Valentine’s Day at La Creme Monterey

578279_333472266772676_2050969814_nWe’re just 9 days away from Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking for a night out with that special someone, consider heading over to Crema Espresso and Wine Bar in Pacific Grove. For the evening, wine and tapas are taking the night off. Instead, La Crème Monterey catering—the wine bar’s big sister—will host a special wine-pairing dinner prepared by chef Jon Moser.

The five-course dinner is priced at $180 per couple, including wine pairings (tax and gratuity not included). Reservations for dinner are a must, as space is limited. Call 831-375-1300 to snag your seats. In the meantime, take a peek at the menu . . .
