Enjoy a 6-course expertly paired wine dinner by LCD - La Côte D'Or Café and Chain Bridge Cellars.

At this dinner, you will enjoy a six-course dinner planned and prepared specially for this event by LCD - La Côte D’Or Café’s famed Chef Jacques Imperato. The wines will be presented by importer, Rob McFarlane, from Potomac Selections . All wines will be available for purchase at Chain Bridge Cellars.

What happens when we ask Chef Jacques to cook from his heart and French/Algerian “Pied Noir” heritage and then pair up wines with his creations? Well, not your usual wine dinner! Instead it’s a six-course, six-wine, North African extravaganza!

This dinner will be hosted at 6:45 PM on Wednesday, September 27th and Thursday, September 28th at LCD - La Côte D'Or Café (6876 Langston Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22213). For our next wine dinners at LCD - La Côte D'Or Café, Chef Jacques digs back into his personal memories of favorite dishes from his family’s time living in Algeria in the early 1960s.
