Cafe Primavera

The festivities continue at the Allied Arts Guild this weekend with a Holiday Tea on Sunday, Dec 12 at Cafe Primavera. “Tea is a bit of a misnomer,” says the restaurant’s manager Maria Tachis. “We will be serving a full buffet, including Chef Greg Russi’s much admired lemon curd dessert.”

Allied Arts is only open a few Sundays a year, so this is an opportunity to browse the shops, admire the decorations, and enjoy a good meal. There will be two seatings – noon and 2:00 pm. For reservations call 321-8810 or email Maria at [email protected]
