ChocoVino returns for Valentine’s Day!

What could be more perfect than pairing gourmet chocolate with a gourmet meal and have a sommelier select wines to enhance the experience? Add in an atmosphere of tropical waters and strumming music for the start of something truly special—perfect for a Valentine’s Day celebration.

The Long Island Aquarium has arranged for such an evening for its ChocoVino Tasting Experience. Set for Valentine’s Day (February 14, 2018), the fun gets started at 8 p.m. where guests arrive to enjoy the most unique setting on the North Fork and East End of Long Island.

ChocoVino features a five-course dinner with each gourmet meal enhanced by a creative incorporation of rich Belgian chocolate. Guests can enjoy tasting meals featuring lobster, filet mignon and duck or sweet potato stew, grilled portabella mushrooms and black bean steak with cauliflower rice. All courses have a delicious weaving of rich chocolate for a flavorful dining experience.
