Bastille Day with a Bang at 2941 Restaurant

Posted Jul 17 2013 11:02am

2941 Restaurant paired up with my store, Chain Bridge Cellars to throw one heck of a Bastille Day Party on July 14th. It was such a successful event, that I’m almost positive we’ll do it again next year. With over 250 tickets sold, guests gathered around the restaurant to wine and dine all day while taking in the beautiful scenery outside the restaurant.

Chef Bertrand Chemel really outdid himself this time. Along with wine and beverage director, Jonathan Schuyler, they put together an absolutely beautiful and mouthwatering spread of charcuterie, salads, cheese, and grilled meats, along with a fantastic selection of French wines that showcased the foods perfectly.
