Please join Chef Jacques, Paul Haeringer and the team at L’Auberge Chez François on Sunday, April 22, 2018 at 5:30pm as we celebrate forty-two years in Great Falls, Virginia.
After losing the space his original French restaurant was operating in Washington D.C., Monsieur François Haeringer searched 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, deli and gun shop. The small commercial tracts development was personally overseen by Monsieur 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 dream and success.
To add to this festive evening, we will feature the wonderful wines of Papa’s beloved France. The wines will be paired with Chef Jacques’ delectable five-course anniversary-inspired menu. Come join in for what will be a memorable culinary and celebratory evening!
