Sequoia By The Night - March 22, 2012

Sequoia By The Night - sponsored by Nello Olivo

On March 22, Nello Olivo Wines and Nello & Danica Olivo will host "Sequoia By The Night," an evening of Sequoia as it "used to be."

For one evening only, Sequoia will open its Victorian-era dining room to the public. Since Sequoia's change of ownership and new focus on the wedding and banquet business, many have missed Sequoia's day-to-day operation as a public restaurant. Former owner, Nello Olivo---who maintains ownership of the Bee-Bennett House---says, "We hear from so many patrons and friends of Sequoia who are disappointed that the restaurant is now closed. But all the amenities of this beautiful house are still here. David Bagley remains as Executive Chef and General Manager. We thought it would be enjoyable to sponsor an evening to bring back that experience of having a wonderful dinner with friends or a loved one in that warm Sequoia atmosphere everyone remembers."

As the kitchen no longer maintains the variety of ingredients needed to support Sequoia's former menu, Chef Bagley has prepared a four-course fixed price dinner representing the fine cuisine Sequoia has been known for---gourmet dishes made from quality fresh ingredients and plated with visual finesse. Dinner begins with a Smoked Chicken on Wasabi Slaw appetizer followed by a soup course of Artichoke Bisque. The entrée is Tenderloin Stuffed Chicken (or a vegetarian choice), and Chocolate Air on Sweet Crisp tops the evening as dessert.

Of note, since Nello and Danica Olivo are sponsoring "Sequoia By The Night," outstanding Sequoia gift cards---no longer accepted by the new ownership---will be valid for this event. Nello Olivo will also cover corkage fees for his wines (with receipt dated same day). Nello Olivo Wines can be purchased in the tasting room located in Sequoia's cellar at 643 Bee Street, open from 3pm weekdays and 11am on weekends (closed Mondays).

Seating for "Sequoia By The Night" is limited by space available in the dining area. Starting time is 6:30pm. The cost is $39 per person, tax and gratuity included. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 530-622-5222.
