Christmas Eve Specials at Woolley's - 2012

Once again, we've got a relaxing evening of celebration planned for Christmas Eve. We invite you to join us for a festive dinner on Monday, December 24, and kick-off your holiday in style!

Twas the Night Before Christmas
(Woolley's style)
'Twas the Night Before Christmas, when all through the room
Jazz music was playing, and conversations bloomed.
The steaks were all plated, prepared with such care, 
In hopes that our guests like them medium-rare;
Families and friends all merry and fine, 
Enjoying their meals and half-off sparkling wine!

Woolley's Restaurant

Bring your loved ones and friends, as we will be open for regular dinner hours with service running from 4:30 to 10pm. We're bringing back the famous Kevin G. Trio to serenade your Christmas Eve meal with live jazz music.

In addition to the full regular dinner menu, Chef Peter has been very busy planning the perfect Christmas Eve Dinner specials for you to enjoy. Take advantage of a special Christmas Eve Wine Lovers' Night as well when you take half off any bottle of champagne or sparkling wine in our collection.

Make your party's reservation online via Open Table or by calling Woolley's at 952-854-1010.

Don't forget, if you're booking for a party of five or more, you get to take advantage of our special Customer Appreciation Month offer as well. (Throughout December, book any party of five or more and 50% (that's right, HALF) of what you spend on food purchases will be given back to you in the form of a gift certificate that you can use in 2013! )

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good steak!

Chef Peter Named Top Chef

With the December issue of Food Service News fresh of the press, we were so excited to see our very own Chef Peter Christenson included in their annual Top Chefs book. Included with the December issue each year, the Top Chef selections are awarded to chefs in the Twin Cities, not just at the hottest restaurants, but those that live out the embodiment of chef as their daily mission.

In the accompanying article, they define chef as, "A team leader, organizer, manager, inventory hard-liner and, sometimes, a business owner. All that on top of being a menu developer and the overall creative force in the kitchen."

Sounds like a pretty tough act in contrast with the glamorized world of a chef's life on popular television shows. Food Service News continues, "It’s not about the loudest voices or the most personable. It’s about who is doing their job—with all its pieces—at the highest level."

With that being said, we're just so proud of Chef Peter and this award. Along with our devoted guests, we knew that Chef Peter was a heavy hitter in the kitchen and a great member of the team, but now, thanks to Food Service News  we can let the world in on it! This was precisely Food Service News' intention with the awards this year. They specifically sought out chefs who, "Have simply kept their heads down and enjoyed the toil, their kitchens pumping out great food with few—or no—accolades. Yet they endure, and their business and reputation among “those in the know” has grown."

To read the Top Chef's article and see the full list of Chef Peter's distinguished comrades, CLICK HERE.

To see a Top Chef in action and congratulate Chef Peter in person, join us this Saturday, December 15, for a FREE Cooking Class. The man himself will be demonstrating preparation techniques for several go-to holiday appetizer and entree options. He's even thinking about demonstrating some seafood preparation techniques as well!

Reservations recommended but not required by calling Woolley's at 952.854.1010.

Congratulations to Chef Peter, our very own Top Chef! We can't think of a more deserving recipient.
