Viglo Pop-Up Dinner at Aqua Grill
You are invited to participate in the Viglo dining experience. This event is carefully created as a labor-of-love by Chef Mimi Lan of TasteCurator.com and Executive Chef Mike Thomashunis of Aqua Grill, to be held at Aqua Grill restaurant in Sawgrass Village, Ponte Vedra. The Viglo dinner is a 5-course gourmet Vietnamese-with-global-influences dinner, with Chef Mimi supplementing each dish with cultural and historical commentary. This is an adventure for those willing to step out of their comfort zones of Asian cuisine.
