22 Jan Chelmsford Restaurant Puts the Heart into Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching; you’ve ordered the flowers and bought a special gift. The recipe is almost complete. Now all you need to do is book an intimate dinner for two at a good restaurant – a sure way to bring a smile to the face of your loved one at the most romantic time of the year.
Channels Bar & Brassiere in Little Waltham is staging a Valentine’s Day special on the Channels Estate on Wednesday 14th February that is sure to impress foodies and romantics alike.
In just 6 months, restaurateur Katie Squire – a member of the Stubbings family who have been running the Channels Estate since 1929 – has transformed the former golf clubhouse into a thriving restaurant earning in the process plaudits and accolades as well as recognition as one of the county’s finest destination restaurants.
But Katie doesn’t plan to rest on her laurels and is staging a Valentine’s dining experience that restaurants in the city of love – Paris, might be proud of. With a special menu, Champagne and Canapés upon arrival, red rose petals and all the staff wearing red – it would not be surprising if there were a wedding proposal or two!
In addition, Channels will be playing host to soul & reggae singer Irie J. Noted for supporting such luminaries as Alexander O’Neal, Gwen Dicky of Rose Royce fame, Imagination and Suzie Quatro, Irie J will be playing live throughout the night to help keep the romance flowing.
For food lovers and lovers of all things daringly delicious, Head Chef Dan Pitts has planned a superb Valentine’s offering with dishes like ravioli of lobster with leek etuve, puffed potato and vanilla bisque; duck breast with celeriac, confit leg croustillant and duck fat potato, and chocolate tart with malt stout ice cream.
