August 2017 Newsletter

Greetings from Chef Jacques
We’re just over a month away from our Romantic Rhine River Cruise with Tauck Tours. I’m excited to be leading over one hundred patrons on this fabulous food and wine tour of Europe. We’re starting in Amsterdam and finishing in Basel and I’ve packed the schedule with wineries and restaurants for us to visit along the way. We’ve almost sold out the entire boat but there are still a few cabins available for those who are interested. You can find out more details about the cruise here. Also in September, I can now confirm that Steve Lauri of the famed band The Hollies will be playing his second concert at L’Auberge. Last year’s Musique et Cuisine Dinner with Steve was an incredible, sold-out night of Rock and Roll and delicious food. 

Did I mention that the garden is bursting with tomatoes right now? Our famous tomato salads are on the menu and it is included with the price of your meal at L’Auberge. You’ll also find our house-made Garden Bloody Marys on our weekend brunch menu, cold gazpacho soup, and warm tomato bisque. I hope to see you soon so you may enjoy the tastes of summer. 

Warm regards,
Chef Jacques, Paul, and the team at L’Auberge Chez François
