We had a busy spring and beginning of Summer and a lot has happened! This blog entry is a little recap of some events you may have missed and to let you know of some new additions here at Vin de Set that we are very excited about!
Mother’s day was a huge hit and we were able to fit in the highest amount of reservations in Vin de Set history! The weather was perfect for outdoor dining and we offered two grand buffets for our guests celebrating this special holiday in appreciation to all mothers in the world! We had a large buffet in our cafe where you will see every Sunday’s Brunch and a long buffet outside on the deck which was covered with crisp-white tents.
We celebrated our 5th Anniversary with a huge pork roast on a perfect Saturday afternoon in June. The event was open to the public, many regulars joined us and we even had contest winners from Y98 join us complimentary for calling in to the station. Tony Cole, Kirby Jones and Ivy Magruder stayed awake all night long previously, roasting the hogs and man was it the best pork ever! We featured a fun dessert bacon bar that was a hit and also had live entertainment for our guests enjoying the BBQ.
We had our annual 4th of July bash with a great turnout even though this holiday fell on a Monday. We offered more seating this year for firework viewing. We try different things for our guests each year in effort to find the best with everything we do but definitely try not to mess with a great thing when it’s found. The buffet spread for this event was amazing, located at Moulin’s Centennial Ballroom and coordinated by Moulin Events Executive Chef, Tony Cole. This buffet had everything you could ever want for an upscale pic nic for the 4th! Guests enjoyed a dessert buffet while watching the fireworks on the rooftop of Vin de Set, finishing the night dancing to Hudson and the Hoodoo Cats. We had a lot going on during this patio season and we hope you were able to join us and if not, hope you can next year! Now on to what’s new!
With the opening of PW Pizza came the time and need for a new Service Manager. It couldn’t have been better timing since we had the opportunity of meeting Sarah Thornton who was looking to expand her management experience. Sarah is a Certified Specialist of Wine and is Vin de Set’s Service Manager as of spring. She has a passion for hospitality and plans on owning a restaurant in the future. We look forward to sharing her journey as long as we can! Oh yeah, and she’s not going to be a Thornton for very much longer. She has a big wedding day coming up in October!
We have also added another level for your rooftop enjoyment! We’re calling it the Upper Deck for now and it features 360 degrees of spectacular Saint Louis view. This area will allow us to be able to accommodate larger groups out on the deck, even on the weekends! Please call us to find out how your group can enjoy the Upper Deck! (314)241-8989.
We have a new Lunch menu item for all of you seafood lovers out there! We have a seafood fettucini with mussels, clams, langostinos, tomatoes, spinach and a white wine-garlic- butter sauce. Delicious! Also, per our guests request, we have added a Salmon entree to the Dinner menu. It is pan seared Salmon served over our brussels sprouts-onion-bacon slaw and drizzled with a parsley coulis.
The heat has been crazy this summer and we hope you are keeping cool and remember us for indoor dining too! We look forward to seeing you!
