That's cool. The first event sold out so quickly that Orchids has agreed to give us a second night. Please join Cincinnati E.A.T.S. for our Winter 2011 event (#2) on Thursday, March 3, at Orchids at Palm Court for cocktails, socializing, and great food -- all for a great cause. Tickets will sell out quickly so do not delay.

Drinks at 7 p.m. Mingle in the most beautiful bar space in all of Cincinnati at the Bar at Palm Court, set in an art deco wonderland. Guests will be seated for dinner at approximately 8 p.m. Orchids will offer a three-course menu with accompanying wine pairings (sold separately). The menu is attached to this email.

There is no doubting that Orchids at Palm Court is one of Cincinnati’s restaurant gems. It has been named Cincinnati’s #1 restaurant for the last two years by Cincinnati Magazine, has been named Cincinnati’s top restaurant by ZAGAT, and has been listed as one of America’s top 50 overall restaurants by OpenTable.com. And all of this takes place in one of Cincinnati’s most historic and beautiful locations – the Palm Court. Since his arrival, Executive Chef Todd Kelly has earned rave reviews for his work and has been named one of only six “Hilton Signature” chefs in America. He has also assembled one of the best food teams in the city: Pastry Chef Megan Ketover has won the American Culinary Federation’s – Pastry Chef of the Year – Northeast Division and Maitre d’ Charles Redmond has been named a Level II Certified Sommelier by the Court of Master Sommelier.
