In a well-timed tie-in with the Meryl Streep feature film Julie & Julia, Nell's is offering a second chance to sign up for their Julia Child Chef Tribute Dinner. You'll sup on French standbys like chilled watercress soup, coq au vin, and napoleons, while being regaled by stories of Child told by local food personality Ernie Peno. Each course is paired with a French wine, from Domaine de Triennes' rosé to a sauternes from Chateau Coutet. This is the second time this special dinner is being offered, as the first one sold out. 524-4044. $80 plus tax & tip. 6:15 p.m. Thurs., Aug 27.
