Santa is coming to Estuary this weekend, to fundraise for Friends of Karen, an organization dedicated to helping families who have a child diagnosed with a life-threatening condition. Starting at 11:00 AM, the restaurant is offering the opportunity to take your picture with Santa alongside complimentary hot chocolate and gingerbread cookie decorating from sister eatery Ebb & Flow by participating in its toy drive. Participation is as simple as bringing in a new, unwrapped toy, buying one available on-site or simply supplying a monetary donation. The restaurant is also offering donors the opportunity to sign one of the ornaments on the restaurant’s Christmas tree that will remain in the heart of the restaurant throughout the rest of the holiday season. Executive Chef Sebastein Chaoui will also be serving brunch.

Desserts include Petit Fours made with Grain de Sail chocolate paired with Sweet Jurançon – Château. (Limited seating available)
