Please join Chef Jacques and the L’Auberge Chez François team on Sunday, September 23rd, at 6:00 pm for our popular full moon garden-to-table rosé fête on our beautiful outdoor terrace (weather permitting), featuring the taste of world famous wines from the Boisset Collection and the sounds of Thomas Kitchen and The Tritone Jazz Trio.
Thomas Kitchen is a classical-trained jazz guitarist who plays a wide range of musical styles and performs regularly in and around the metropolitan area. The Tritone Jazz Trio grew out of a longstanding jazz performance in Silver Spring, MD, where keyboard player Peter Runk, bassist Walter Heber, and guitarist Thomas Kitchen met. Since that time, the Trio has played in a variety of performances together throughout the DC metropolitan area.
The party begins with a reception, sipping chilled JCB 69 Crémant Rosé and savoring seasonal canapés.
We will toast the moon’s fire, abundance, power and vitality, before sitting amid flowers and murmuring fountains to relish Chef Jacques’ garden-to-table inspired repast, from his two on-site gardens, accompanied by two more refreshing Rosé wines.
Those intrepid enough can join Chef Jacques in the gardens to conclude the evening by howling at the moon, the chef’s tradition to ensure an excellent harvest of vegetables and herbs throughout the season.
