A veritable bevy of special events are slated to take place at Millennium over the next couple weeks, and with the posh Savoy Hotel eatery being one of the best dining destinations in the city (vegetarian or otherwise), we thought we give you a quick rundown of the special offers.
• Thursdays through Saturdays, during the entire month of June: Morel & Spring Mushroom Menu: Spring mushrooms in the summer may sound like a contradiction of sorts, but the $48 four-course prix fixe menu will be titillating palates during the entire month, ingredients willing of course. Look for the special menu here soon.
• June 3rd:Aphrodisiac Night: Keeping with tradition, Millennium continues to offer Aphrodisiac Nights on the Sunday of the month closest to the full moon. During the month of June, it’s this upcoming weekend. For $45 per person, couples get a five-course meal that includes shared appetizers, a sensuous dessert and “Chinese herbal love potions for two.” Also, for $192, you can opt for the overnight package, which includes the special dinner and a room at the Hotel Savoy, where you can talk about the dinner you just enjoyed.
• June 12th: Joan Linn Bekins Art & Wine Reception: Photographer Bekins rings in a six-month exhibit with a reception that will feature Storrs wine and passed hors d’oeuvres. Tickets are $25 ($30 at the door) and the Tuesday night event takes place from 5:30pm-7:30pm.
• June 13th: Convert A Carnivore: On the second Wednesday of every month, parties of two get 25% off the bill, provided your “friend” enjoys the taste of animals. We’re not really sure how they get you to prove you’re a carnivore, but we could think of a few fun ways.
