Greetings on this lovely fall morning! The weather has been spectacular here on the Oregon Coast and we’re meeting lots of new folks who have waited until school started to do some travelling. For those of you who live elsewhere, I’ll let you in on a little secret … September is the BEST time to visit!
On Sunday afternoon, the Mon Ami Team catered a very special, landmark event – the 40th anniversary celebration of the Western Lane Community Foundation – which was hosted by our wonderful friends Tom Bassett & Rich Bailey at their beautiful home. Tom & Rich (who we affectionately refer to as The Boys Next Door) are, in fact, our neighbors right next door at Florence Antiques. The weather was PERFECT for an al fresco buffet, and the Mon Ami gang truly outdid themselves with a spectacular display. Chef Diane’s Pork Tenderloin Wellington was amazing! I’ll try to get some pictures up on the website this week, but suffice to say I’m pretty proud of my team ;)

Our friend Leo the Produce Man continues to bring over beautiful corn on the cob, Willamette Valley tomatoes, peaches, apples, and bee-u-ti-ful squash. His produce stand is right across the street in front of the old gas station – every Monday, Thursday & Saturday – and he’ll continue through October. We so appreciate the opportunity to hand-pick such beautiful, locally sourced produce for our menu each week!
Have a lovely week!
