Beaujolais Nouveau Evening
The Pomo D’Oro restaurant in Corfu Town is hosting themed evenings again this winter. I was there on Thursday with some friends to enjoy the Beaujolais Nouveau evening – advertised at 22 Euros all inclusive of food and wine. There will be a themed evening each week, on a Tuesday or a Thursday evening, and the details are available in Mesogio shop (newsagents/tobacconists), next door to McDonalds, as well as at the restaurant.
In a lovely setting just behind the well-known Serano coffee shop, Pomo D’Oro has a lovely warm welcoming atmosphere and tasteful decor. We took our seats and the evening began.
Our chef poured us all a glass of Beaujolais and served a tasty first course of chicken terrine with mixed salad. Then followed the main course, slow roasted pork with mushrooms and another glass of Beaujolais. The dessert was a French classic – mille-feuille with creme-patisserie and a kind of fudgey sauce. All totally delicious and beautifully presented. Not having to choose from the menu and the wish I’d chosen something else was an added bonus for me.
We waited for the bill, expecting some hidden extras like the bottles of water and the extra glasses of wine, but sure enough, it was 22 Euros per head. All delighted and having spent a very enjoyable evening we donned our coats and the chef held the door open for us. As we left, we were each presented with a bottle of Beaujolais to take home – I am drinking mine as I type this.
