When one of our favorite restaurants, Mirabelle, close a few months ago, Nena and I were really bummed. But, almost immediately, we heard that it was re-opening at the Three Village Inn in April.

Well, Mirabell itself will be opening soon, but next week they are celebrating the opening of Mirabell Tavern. Chef Guy Reuge is teaming with Eric Fry, winemaker at Lenz Winery on the celebration, which promises to be a fun one.

Both are at the top of their crafts on Long Island.

And, assuming we can get our babysitter situation worked out, Nena and I will be there toasting them both as Mirabelle returns to our lives.
