September 10th, 2010 · No Comments

Some of the restaurants in town appreciate those of us who dine all year long – and so we’re rewarded with neat deals like Caffe Luna Rosa’s (Delray Beach) wine dinner Monday, Sept. 13.

Chef Ed DiBlasi teamed up with sommelier Nikola Stijack and created a five-course meal for $39 (plus tax, tip).

Here’s his menu:
