Foreign correspondents, I am SO sorry, but this contest is only open to the U.S. and Canada.
Giveaway 2 – NYC residents and visitors
Bruno Jamais Restaurant Club brings the French Riviera to the upper east side. Where else can one dine in style until 3 a.m., on delectable cuisine including foie gras and chocolate soufflé? The service and décor are equally impressive. The restaurant received “Best Interior Design” from Hospitality Design Magazine. Monday nights feature live entertainment, with the best of jazz and soul.
On a cold winter’s night, allow debonair owner Bruno Jamais to make you feel at home and beat the doldrums of winter. With Chef Hok Chin at the kitchen’s helm, the cuisine is sure to delight even the most discerning palates. Bruno Jamais and Chef Hok Chin have created a unique menu that has an Asian influence without losing its French integrity. Bruno Jamais is also the perfect place to book your private party, as it can accommodate up to 200 diners for a buffet dinner — or 70 for a sit-down dinner. For upper east siders tired of trekking downtown for an evening of fun, this exclusive venue has it all. Celebrity patrons have included Billy Baldwin, Joan Rivers, Cindy Adams, Chazz Palminteri, and even former President Bill Clinton. Reservations are suggested and chic attire is requested.
Bruno Jamais is on 81st Street in NYC, and they will be sending one lucky reader a $50 gift card. This contest is open to Americans (and Canadians) who live in or plan to visit New York City in the near future.
