Valentine’s Weekend Recap

Monday, February 15th, 2010

Wow, wow and wow!  Let me just tell you how much fun we had this weekend at Aperitif Restaurant & Bar.  The 3 days and nights of Valentine’s celebrations were absolutely fantastic here in Woodbury and guests loved it!  We set records for covers and revenues, and we’re not stopping…

Guests really appreciated our 3-Course Prix Fixe menu and also the ability to order a la carte off the menu as well.  It was a wonderful experience and we can’t wait to do it again.

Whether they were in the lounge, bar or main part of the restaurant, guests were in a celebratory & festive mood.  We are really finding a home in Woodbury and love the guest feedback that we’ve gotten so far.  We hope to see more of you soon, let us know when you’ll be making it to Aperitif!

Happy Valentine’s Week!

We’ve been working up here in the Frozen Tundra (well, not always frozen) in Minnesota with on our latest project, Aperitif Restaurant & Bar. Well, we had our opening night on Saturday, January 30th, which was a great success!

The Nyman Group has officially gotten back into Day to Day operations (serving as the Management Company for the venue) and running a restaurant with my dad has been a lifelong dream. It is a wild, amazing, exhaustive, rewarding, demanding and most of all fun process that is truly just beginning!

I’ve attached a brief clip of the restaurant below:
