This is a reprise of the restaurant’s successful dinner last May, and marks the relaunch of lunch and breakfast service daily at Café Normandie.
Guests are invited to come early and enjoy a drink prior to the dinner at Kilroy’s Lobby Bar, where live jazz will be being performed with the Reid Poole Trio.
