Restaurants offer special menus
and couples to receive news and boyfriends
Campinas gastronomic sector provides 10% growth in the movement on Valentine’s Day
Campinas, June 3, 2013 – Valentine’s Day – celebrated on June 12, Wednesday – is considered the main date for the gastronomic sector. For restaurants in Campinas, the expectation for this year is an increase of around 10% in the volume of service on the same date last year. To meet this demand of couples who come to celebrate the day, the houses prepare special menus, surprises and even freebies to make the evening even more enjoyable.
“Just as there are strong dates for trade in general, Valentine’s Day is very important and strong for the gastronomic sector, because the restaurants are the most sought after by couples – boyfriends and married – to celebrate this special day,” explains Carlos Américo Louredo, unit director of Campinas Joe & Leo’s Family Restaurant, Park. D. Pedro Mall.
The house held on April 12 a series of promotional activities during dinner. Besides offering Absinthe Joe & Leo’s for the couple – who does not drink alcohol can opt for a fruit cocktail aphrodisiac – the restaurant will also have a photographer to record the couples present, promoting a mural on your facebook page in days, in addition to raffling off 15 pairs of tickets to any of the pieces on display at the Teatro Amil during the month of June.
Among the more than 70 courses offered to their customers, one of the suggestions Joe & Leo’s to this day is Red Sox, a paste prepared with Gorgonzola sauce and parmesan cheese, served with strips of grilled chicken filet, cebolete and tomatoes Dry considered a real home run.
Joe & Leo’s works with table reservations early, only up to 19h. After this time, the entry will be subject to availability of tables. The phone number for reservations is: (19) 32081414.
The Paradise Village Restaurant, District Joaquim Egidio exceptionally open on Valentine’s Day. With capacity for 300 people, the house will get its customers on this day by candlelight, in addition to heaters and fireplaces, and live music. According to Fernanda Barrier, marketing director of the restaurant, this year there will be no advance reservations to avoid queues and inconvenience generated by last minute withdrawals.
For this Valentine’s Day, says Fernanda, the house will provide a menu closed. There will be five choices of starters (antipasti table, Dadinho Tapioca, squid fried calamari, carpaccio, cone Siri and Cookie Cod). As main courses, customers will have choices of pasta, fish, shrimp and meat. One of the suggestions is the Fettuccine Burrata, a novelty created by chef Fernando Barreira, especially for the date. It is prawns flambé in cognac, accompanied by fettuccine sauce tomato and Burrata Giant melted over pasta, with a slight touch of pesto.
For dessert, there are three options. The novelty will be the responsibility of the Mescladinho a petit gateau with chocolate batter and white chocolate shavings black, lemon zest, accompanied by vanilla ice cream, created by the Marketing Manager Fernanda Barrier.
