The Holidays at Prima!

The holidays always make me think of how much we have to be thankful for.  At the top of my list is being able to raise my family here on this beautiful island because of the amazing support from you, our awesome customers.  Thank you so much for your continued patronage.  And also deep gratitude to our families, including the awesome work family that works so hard for this place to succeed.

 Holiday info:  We will be open on Christmas Eve for LUNCH ONLY.  Closed Christmas Eve dinner and all day Christmas. We will be open all day New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.  Join us for our traditional New Year's Eve bash.  This year we've got Trio Nouveau lined up to play from 8 until midnight.  We will serve our regular dinner menu with some extra special specials along with a special champagne list.  Starting at 10:30 we will move some of the tables aside for some swing dancing (or whatever kind of dancing you feel like doing!)  If you are planning on staying through midnight with us, your reservation needs to be after 9:00.  Dinner will be served until 10:00, munchies available after.  We will again be selling the Tuzzie Muzzie hats, with proceeds to benefit the South Whidbey Children's Center.  Call soon for reservations...we always fill up quickly!


Langley businesses are competing to raise money for our local food bank, Good Cheer, with a holiday door decorating contest.  Vote for your favorite door design by depositing your vote (money) in the box in your favorite business.  We were so lucky to have Tobey Nelson, owner of the new local floral and event design business, Vases Wild, create our front door.  Please think of her the next time you have needs in the decorating arena...she's really great to work with.  Her website is www.vaseswild.com and you can also find her on facebook.

PLATS DU JOUR:  I finally convinced Sieb to do this...I'm so excited!  Instead of offering a dinner special Sunday-Thursday, we are offering plats du jour as follows: 
Sunday - Coq Au Vin - red wine braised chicken, mushrooms, bacon, fresh fettucine.
Monday - Bouillabaisse - mussels, clams, white fish, rouille, saffron fume'
Tuesday - 1/2 Roasted Duck - cheddar fritters, arugula, citrus-duck jus
Wednesday - CASSOULET!!!  lamb, pork, rockwell beans, garlic sausage, duck confit (you can tell which one i'm most excited for)
Thursday - Saucisson de Maison "choucroute" - house made sausage, new potatoes, manny's beer braised sauerkraut
Fridays and Saturdays we will run dinner specials as usual.

 $1000 cash giveway!  For every $20 you spend at participating Langley businesses, ours included, you will receive tickets to be entered into the drawing that will take place at noon on December 18th at the Boy and the Dog (must be present to win).  Did you know that 68% of dollars spent locally is reinvested back into your community?  KEEP THE CHEER HERE!!!!
