The Bucks County Taste Dinner Club
I’ll be the first to admit it. When Jericho National Golf Club in New Hope first reached out asking to host a dinner club event, I was skeptical. A country club? Banquets, yes. But an intimate, delicious meal worthy of my Bucks County Taste Dinner Club peeps?
But then Mark and I had dinner at the club’s restaurant. We were charmed by the delicious food, great service and beautiful view. What a hidden gem!
Please join us on Sunday, March 5 for a lovely evening including three courses and dessert. Click below for more information and the menu for the evening.
