Hey all, I promise I don't work for anyone (you can see I've been posting on here for quite a while now) but I just thought I would share. There's a neat website called Gilt City which is a fancy version of Groupon and they have the following deal for Avenues:
Traditional Tasting Dinner for Two: $295
Package includes eight-course protein tasting menu for two guests, with a visit from Chef Curtis Duffy at the Avenues in the Peninsula Hotel. Also includes two glasses of champagne, valet parking, and a copy of Peninsula Book "Beyond Hospitality". Tax is included in price. Offer is limited to Tuesday-Friday. Offer must be redeemed by February 18, 2011.

Vegetarian Tasting Dinner for Two: $255
Package includes eight-course vegetarian tasting menu for two guests, with a visit from Chef Curtis Duffy at the Avenues in the Peninsula Hotel. Also includes two glasses of champagne, valet parking, and a copy of Peninsula Book "Beyond Hospitality". Tax is included in price. Offer is limited to Tuesday-Friday. Offer must be redeemed by February 18, 2011.

You will have to register and if you can't get registered and it wants someone to invite you, you can email me at unimeg 07 at yahoo dot com and I will be happy to send you an invitation.
I can't afford this on my poor college student budget but I hope one of you can!

      Thanks for the heads up. They are sold out of the non vegetarian tasting. I was thinking of buying one, as the cost of the dinner approximates the cost of parking at the hotel for a few hours. Thanks for the heads up. I've added this site to my favorite places. I've purchased a number of things on Gilt and been very satisfied.
