Michelin-starred restaurant Le Jardinier is launching an NA cocktail pairing menu in partnership with Everleaf that will be available for the month of January. Created by bartender and conservation biologist, Paul Matthew, Everleaf’s three expressions – Forest, Mountain, and Marine – are all anchored in different parts of the natural world, which act as both inspiration for flavor profiles and sources for key botanicals.

The seasonal expression menu is $195 per person and the NA pairing menu will be priced at $55 per person, in comparison to the $95 wine pairing menu option. See full menu for reference below:
