Between Boutique Cafe & Lounge has lasted a year despite its unwieldy name, and to celebrate will be offering complimentary samples of chef Radhika Desai’s eclectic fare: a lobster trifecta (lobster empanadas, lobster and bacon mac ‘n’ cheese, and lobster cakes) and Duck Duck Goose (leg of duck with sweet potato pancakes, gosseberry jam, and orange-black pepper sauce). There will also be  a choice of complimentary wine or a cocktail, the Betweeni, pinot noir with black cherry Effen.
