DC Tasting Journal Five Large Rustic Italian Courses + Wine and glass of Champagne with Dessert

Our good friend James over at The Tasting Journal is doing it once again, from this Thursday, December 4th thru Sunday, December 14th you can enjoy an amazing dinning experience.

To Make Reservations :

Tastings Journal is truly taking off with each month getting stronger, almost 500 people attended their last event and with 3400 members on Facebook they are almost surpassing LITON EVENTS facebook group. James and crew are hard at work trying to provide the best dinner deals in Washington, and this month we have another awesome event. 5 Courses + Wine + Champagne with Dessert.

Located in the heart of the Dupont Circle area for more than 15 years, Odéon Café is located conveniently only two+ blocks from the Metro, offering an exciting culinary experience within an inviting atmosphere. With their newly renovated two-story dining room provides a beautiful and spacious bar where you can relax during happy hour or while awaiting a table. Their comfortable seating includes intimate tables for two and space for parties of ten or more. This is a smaller venue than normal so they are encouraging you to please reserve the prime seats early.

FYI - Because it is December we may not extend the event past the 14th.
