The Stars Align for Valentine’s Day at Gracie’s

Special restaurant opening, sweet-sipping specialty cocktail, decadent dessert
for two and complimentary couple photos mark Valentine’s Day 2012

Calling all lovebirds! Award-winning and nationally recognized Providence restaurant Gracie’s will open its doors on both Monday, February 13 and Tuesday, February 14 to cater to the busy schedules of those aiming to celebrate the holiday of love. Already known for its romantic ambience, Gracie’s is “sweetening the pot” to make Valentine’s Day an extra special occasion for guests.

While Executive Chef Matthew Varga prepares culinary delights from the restaurant’s new winter menu, Wine & Spirits Director Jason Wessel will tempt guests at the opening of the meal with “Mon Cheri,” a winter-flavored sparkler with a medley of citrus and berry tastes concocted especially for Valentine’s Day.

And to cap off the evening in a memorable way, Pastry Chef Melissa Denmark used Cupid as her inspiration to create the most delectable of desserts. Gracie’s Valentine’s Day “Dessert for Two” will feature Chocolate Cake Doughnuts made from hazelnut nougatine, blood orange ganache and cardamom, and topped with spiked whipped cream. To compliment the dessert, Wessel crafted a sweet and smooth “Berries & Spice” cocktail.

Additionally – on Valentine’s Day only – Gracie’s will offer complimentary “For the Love of it” photos taken in front of a romantically themed backdrop to capture the special evening.

Given the popularity of dining out on Valentine’s Day, Gracie’s encourages guests to make reservations for the special occasion as soon as possible.
