Join us at AVANT's Table 65 for unique dinners influenced by cuisine minceur (literally meaning ‘slimming cooking’), a style of cooking pioneered by Michelin star chef, Michel Guerard.

Using techniques learned in France, AVANT’s culinary team will present you with light-style, healthful dishes that are extremely flavorful. Whether anti-inflammatory focused, vegetable forward or full cuisine minceur (limiting the use of starch, sugar, butter, and cream), guests will enjoy a true culinary experience.

Guests will leave with a menu and list of local farmer’s markets’ to inspire future creations.

Wednesdays: 9/26, 10/3
Thursdays: 10/11, 10/18, 10/25
Tuesdays: 10/30, 11/6, 11/13
