L’Auberge Chez François’ 41st Anniversary Celebration Dinner
Thursday, April 20, 2017 at 6:30pm
Please join Chef Jacques, Paul Haeringer and the entire team at L’Auberge Chez Francois as we celebrate 41 years in Great Falls, Virginia with a festive anniversary dinner featuring the wines of Jean-Marc Brocard.
It was Francois “Papa” Haeringer who opened the restaurant on April 20, 1976 in Great Falls. After losing the space his original French restaurant in Washington D.C., Monsieur François looked around for a bucolic setting to open a new restaurant. He wanted its design to be quintessentially French country and reflect his Alsatian roots. He chose six acres off Springvale Road that used to house a car repair shop, a deli and a gun shop. The small commercial tracts development was personally overseen by François to create the cottage style, exposed timber restaurant that still sits on the property. His goal was to operate a restaurant with “a nice ambiance and good honest food at affordable prices.” The restaurant’s enduring popularity is a testimony to his success with this approach.
To add to this festive evening, we welcome Etienne Verdier from Domaine Brocard to guide us through the wonderful Chardonnays of Chablis. The wines will be paired with Chef Jacques’ delectable five course anniversary-inspired menu. All Brocard wines will be available to purchase at a special anniversary pricing. Come join in what will be a memorable culinary and celebratory evening!
