La Coop Bistro in NuLu

We like these special dinners – especially the wine dinners – because they’re often good values.

We posted a while back that Chef Bobby Benjamin was offering a special Monday night three-course Italian prix fixe menu rather than La Coop’s regular French bistro menu, on March 25.

We just noticed the date has been changed to Mon., April 29, according to the La Coop Facebook page.

We try to keep on top of these things.

The “Lundi Cena Osteria” (Monday menu bistro) is $35 per person, plus tax and gratuity.

Italian sparkling wine pairings are available with each course for an additional $30 per person.

Seating at the Italian-themed dinner is available from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m.

Reservations are required.

For more information, please call the restaurant at 502-410-2888.
