June 2017 Newsletter

Greetings from Chef Jacques
Finally, it feels like summer. Our organic gardens are in full swing and the flowers are all in bloom. Now is the perfect time of year for dining al fresco on one of our outdoor terraces. We don’t take reservations for the outdoor tables, they are seated on a first come, first served basis. And while you’re here, take a tour of our beautiful gardens to see where our salad greens, vegetables and herbs are growing.

Father’s Day is just a few days away. If you don’t have the perfect gift for Dad, snap up a ticket to one of our cooking demonstrations or one of our other special events. Coming up in July are our annual Bastille Day celebrations including a musical brunch with French music and a special dinner featuring the delectable wines of the Boisset Collection. Also in July will be our first in an ongoing series of Chef Jacques’ Table dinners. Our first installment will feature the renowned wine expert Julie Swift leading us through a tasting of fine German wines.

Come celebrate the summer at L’Auberge Chez François and Jacques’ Brasserie with great food, drinks, and friends.

Best culinary wishes,
Chef Jacques, Paul, and the team of L’Auberge Chez François
