Bid Adieau to Rover's - Tasting Menu Extravaganza

It is sad to hear that Rover's will be closing in late June after a 25 year run.

Rover is the best french restaurant in Seattle IMO.

(Most recent honors: A rare 29/30 score in the new Zagat ratings, where it was judged Seattle's #1 restaurant for food and for service.)

We're doing one last hurrah at Rover's before Chef Thierry closes shop to move on to his next big project. Let's bid adieu to this legendary Seattle culinary icon in style, shall we?

Please sign up only if you are interested in ordering one of the tasting menus. We plan to stay here for a good amount of time.

(Menu items may change due to seasonal availability of ingredients.)

**Yes, you will be paying an expensive meal but you are paying for Excellence who is a master at his craft.  You also might get to meet him after your dinner. Thierry Rautureau is a hard man not to like with his signature hats why he is called chef in the hat.

*****

RSVP ETTIQUETTE: Serious folks only, please.

Don't incur my wrath by flaking on this one. Trust me.

My credit card is on the line for this any no shows will be charged.

***RSVP ETIQUETTE: Since we have limited space I ask that you (and your guest) be considerate of others and commit to your RSVP.

****In the past there have been issues with last minute cancellations . Your last minute cancellation deprives another of an opportunity to sail so we are not very forgiving with regard to no-shows. If you sign-up and cancel the day of the event, you will be excluded from my future events.**

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
