Please join Chef Jacques, Paul Haeringer and the team at L’Auberge Chez François on Saturday, April 20th at 6:00pm as we celebrate our 70th Anniversary on the exact evening we opened in Washington DC on April 20th, 1954.

Chef Jacques and team will kick off our 70th celebratory experience with a grand toast to Papa and Mama. Our anniversary culinary event promises to be filled with very special anecdotes, history, and lore of Papa and Mama’s move to Washington, DC with Papa’s Chez François then journeying to the “country” to open their dream “L’Auberge” on April 20th, 1976.

Enjoy Chef Jacques’ specially chosen seven-course classic family favorite’s degustation menu with French wine pairings, in our beautiful garden room which boasts a fireplace, large windows, 15-foot ceilings and sweeping views of our organic vegetable gardens and terraces.
