Feast with Friends
Feast on a three-course meal at Wildebeest this Thursday with your lover (or friend, or mom, they’re not judging). Executive Chef Ian McHale has whipped up a parade of extra-special dishes, including albacore tuna with pickled wakame, wild boar belly with burnt onion consommé, and dark chocolate mousse with espresso crumb. For an even better deal, bring another couple (or your brothers, or your neighbours, or your knitting group).
When: Thursday, February 14
Cost: $69 per person
