Treat Mom to a Champagne Brunch This Mother’s Day at Finn & Porter! (PRESS RELEASE)

By Slowdownandsavor

Happy Hump-Day everyone! So, I receive tons of press releases throughout the week regarding this event or that menu change at Cafe XYZ. There are only a few that really catch my eye that I feel like would be beneficial to those of you who come to visit SD&S on a regular basis, and this is one of them.

As you may recall, the fine folks over at Finn & Porter and Newton O’Neill Communications set up a menu tasting for my husband and I this past February. It was during that exquisite meal that I was sold on all things F&P and Chef Maffei. 

With all that said, when this press release made its way into my mail box, I decided it was worth sharing. Plus, those crab cakes in the photo had me drooling all over my keyboard. So without further ado…

Treat mom to a four-course menu created by Chef Maffei
