Can’t afford a quick jaunt to the Pink City in the south of France? Pas de problème! Café Toulouse at Knox-Henderson is offering what owner Alberto Lombardi has appropriately named “A Trip Along the Loire” for your palate. Paris native and executive chef of the chic bistro -- Yoann Lardeaux -- will pair classic French entrees with wine. Check out their menu below. For less than fifty bucks for three courses, it’s cheaper than a trans-Atlantic flight. Try not to drool on your keyboard.
