Dinner @ Cafe Juanita (Northern Italian) [Kirkland] - Earlier Night


I have to put down my CC to hold the reservation and they do charge a fee for last minute cancellations so do not RSVP for this unless you can commit to it.  You must update your RSVP 48 hours prior to the event to give ample time to notify those on wait-list of their status. I will be keeping track of no-shows.

IMPORTANT NOTES: Please note that Rhonda is hosting the family style dinner on the 24th.  This event is to allow those who want to order off the menu an opportunity to join me on an earlier night.

Also - Watch your RSVP's! DO NOT DOUBLE-BOOK YOURSELVES. There are two (2) events going on at the same time this evening. Cafe Juanita and Fabulous French Fridays in February – French Surprise – Quatre.

About Café Juanita:
The menu at Cafe Juanita changes frequently, but always includes an eclectic mix of meats and seafood, illustrating the commitment to fresh, bold dishes that most often utilize organic products. As a member of the food community, Chef Holly believes in sustainable agriculture, supporting growers whose outstanding quality is tantamount to their long-term commitment to the land. In addition to nurturing the farm industry, Cafe Juanita is committed to offering great wine. The menu is complimented by an award-winning wine list with primary focus on Northern Italian producers and rounded-out with outstanding Northwest wines.

    Foodies, if you are unable to join us on Friday, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE update your RSVP in advance since we have 7 folks still waiting to attend the event w/ us. Waiting until the last min/day to un-RSVP yourself will not give our waitlisters enough time to be notified and it will disrupt our reservation. Let's end the work-week w/ a fabulous meal there and I'll see you all Friday!
