Taste the Love at Village Tavern

Last January 23, 2013, I attended an event called “Taste the Love” hosted by the Bistro Group at Village Tavern. Although one might think (as I did) that this is a Valentine’s related promo (as Valentine’s is fast approaching), it isn’t. Taste the Love actually is a campaign to celebrate several key milestones for the The Bistro Group.

  1. Opening of 50 restaurants spread across 12 concepts
  2. the appointment of Corporate Chief Josh Boutwood
  3. launching of their premiere card
