Nik the Chic Chef provided and exquisite five course meal, introducing each meal before the entree was served by personal servers at each table.  Guests were treated to a cucumber strawberry salad or tomato mozzarella caprese salad with Chef Nik's very own vinaigrette and olive oil.  The next course was a choice of chicken lollipops or crabcakes.  Both with very unique succulent sauces. Soups were introduced, Sweet corn or a choice of Cilantro Avocado lime.  For the main course guest had a choice of: pan seared salmon and shrimp, with mushrooms and spinach in a moscato sauce or Herb roasted chicken, truffle skin potatoes asparagus with orange zest.  Vocalist Eric King serenaded the attendees with tunes from the Temptations and dedicating My Girl to his bride.  Poet Coco Nichol's also known as "Enlightened" blessed the mic with two pieces of poetry that helped set the mood for the couples.  Couples had the opportunity to have chocolate covered strawberries and flower bouquets delivered to their dates right at their table.  They topped the night off with a decadent dessert: chocolate cake with strawberries and cream and a decadent side of banana pudding.  Actress Shar Jackson chose the best dressed couple and the guests mingled and danced the night away.  A Taste of Chic was nothing short of an ultimate date night to benefit the Waste Not Want Not Foundation.
