MONTCLAIR, NJ - Samba Montclair will be celebrating their fourth anniversary with a free 'Thank You' dessert trio at dinner.

For two weeks only, January 26-29 and February 2-5, dinner guests will enjoy complimentary dessert as a special thank you from owner Ilson Goncalves and his team. "When I opened Samba, my dream was to present the food I grew up enjoying in my native Brazil," says Goncalves. "Our 'gift' to customers is a thank you to the community for their support. Restaurants come and go, I know, but Montclair has supported me for four years and I'm very grateful."

The featured dessert will be a trio of popular items from Samba's dessert menu:
