Vive le Franck's
Got a hankering to visit France? Well, you can save on expensive airfare by visiting Franck's Restaurant (6263 S. Holladay Blvd., 801-274-6264, FrancksFood.com) instead. On Monday, Feb. 1, Franck's will host a Classic French Wine Dinner featuring Champagne and Grand Cru Burgundies paired with classic French cuisine. The menu looks extremely enticing, featuring four courses starting with toasted brioche, foie gras mousse, country pâté and a grape-herb salad paired with Ayala Brut Majeur Champagne. It's followed by a 2013 Oliver Leflaive Les Setilles Burgundy with a sous vide diver scallop, grain mustard beurre blanc and fried smelt nicoise. Courses three and four feature cassoulet with duck confit, lamb belly and linguiça paired with 2006 Nicholas Potel Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Burgundy; and beef cheek bourguignon with 2009 Domaine Faiveley Clos Des Cortons Grand Cru Monopole Burgundy. The cost for the dinner is $90 per person, plus tax and gratuity.

Coffee Break
Partners and Los Angeles transplants Nick Price and Meg Frampton have opened Three Pines Coffee (62 E. Gallivan Ave., 801-395-8907, ThreePinesCoffee.com) behind the Gallivan Center; you may have visited their coffee cart at Liberty Heights Fresh. Along with drip coffee, hot tea, chai, matcha and espresso, Three Pines features a yet-to-be-named beverage of shaved ice, espresso, house-made almond milk and vanilla, shaken in a cocktail shaker for $5.50.

Unlimited @ Eccles
Following a national search, the new downtown George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater—slated for a grand opening this September—has chosen Salt Lake City-based Cuisine Unlimited (CuisineUnlimited.com) to provide exclusive food and beverage services for the venue, including innovative theater concessions, event catering and the management of a new restaurant: Encore Bistro at Eccles Theater. "Our company is honored to be selected as the exclusive caterer for the prestigious Eccles Theater. Like many of the recent additions to our community, this theater will prove to be another milestone for our great city," said Cuisine Unlimited founder Maxine Turner. Johnson & Wales University graduate Stacey Rosatti has been named the executive chef overseeing all food services at the theater.

Quote of the week: Coffee has two virtues: It is wet and warm.
