Ah, to stay young...
I got this notice in the email:
Tiny New York Meatpacking District restaurant Jarnac will turn 8-years-old but celebrate just its 2nd birthday on the coming leap-year day of Friday, February 29.
The famous 32-seat French restaurant on the corner of West 12th and Greenwich St opened on February 29, 2000 – another leap-year day.
Owner Tony Powe has only been able to celebrate one birthday for the neighborhood restaurant.
Jarnac has managed to survive 8 years of turbulent market conditions despite being one of the smallest restaurants in Manhattan.
On the leap year day of Friday, February 29, Jarnac is offering the public entrees at a special Leap Year price of $20.08 (2008, 2nd birthday).
