The restaurant’s owner Jon tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that J.P. and Ashley ‘were definitely happy about their circumstances, holding hands and sitting next each other!’
Bachelorette Ashley Hebert and her fiance J.P. Rosenbaum are madly in love and they’re not afraid to show it! This past weekend J.P. and Ashley flew down to Boca Raton, Fla. to visit J.P.’s extended family — and on Saturday, Aug. 13. they celebrated J.P.’s grandfather’s 90th birthday at Six Tables restaurant. While at the dinner, J.P. and Ashley were the cutest couple sitting next to each other, kissing and holding hands, the restaurant’s owner and chef Jon Fyhrie tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
“They embraced and smooched several times [in front of J.P.'s whole family],” Jon says. “They were definitely happy about their circumstances, holding hands and sitting next to each other.”
Jon was super impressed by J.P. and Ashley. “They were a very cool couple, very composed and polite,” he shares. “I was surprised at how young they are, but they are very mature and very together as a couple — totally into each other.”
J.P.’s uncle Dr. Rich Kornblath, a regular customer at the restaurant, organized the shindig, reveals Jon. They rented out the whole restaurant for a private, 5-course dinner. 15 people including J.P., Ashley, and J.P.’s mom and dad, attended.
“The dinner consisted of five courses,” notes Jon. “They had a choice of sea bass, rack of lamb, half of a roasted duck, [or one other selection]. J.P. had the duck and Ashley had the sea bass.”
As part of the celebration, J.P. and Ashley joined his family members to sing “Happy Birthday” to his grandpa, says Jon. “There was a birthday cake, but the cake was for the moment and not to be consumed. We didn’t cut into the cake. They took it home. [Instead, the group] ate my sugarless and flowerless chocolate cake and blackberry, buttermilk panna cotta.”
The party started out with a champagne toast, adds Jon. The meal cost $65.00 per person (a total of $975) not including wine and gratuity.
“They were a very easy group,” confirms Jon. “They wanted to have privacy at a nice place.”
Jon opened Six Tables in 2004, and refers to his restaurant as “a secret known to a few.”
J.P.’s family clearly loves Ashley! “Flying thru those storms was nuts. Home sweet home! Never a doubt in my mind, but the rest of the fam LOVED the new fiancé @ashhebert” he tweeted Aug. 14.
