Beef Wellington at the Warm Puppy Cafe?

This month, long-time restaurateur Josef Keller (formerly of Josef’s Restaurant at the La Rose Hotel) will be doing a pop-up dinner at the Snoopy’s Home Ice cafe.

Really.

Keller took over the kitchen of the much-loved eatery six months ago, revamping the menu and promoting fresher fare including grilled salmon, beef stew with polenta and spaetzli (don’t worry, there are still nachos and hot dogs, too).

He’ll be flexing his white-tablecloth skills during a one-night-only 3-course dinner on Friday, March 11. The prix fixe menu includes prawns in garlic and herb sauce, creme of asparagus soup, sea bass in lobsters sauce, beef Wellington, osso bucco and chocolate torte, among other dishes.

Space is limited to 60 guests and is expected to sell out. To reserve your place, call 546-7147 ext. 219 for details. Limited wine lists and BYO wine/$10 corkage. Seatings begin at 6p.m.
