French Meets American Dinner Series

Washington DC - September 3rd at Central Michel Richard

Our first-ever collaboration with Central Michel Richard is officially a wrap, and oh, what a collaboration it was!!! We were admittedly a bit nervous when Executive Chef Nick Johnson informed us that he wanted to individually plate each course (rather than our usual family-style format), as individually plating six courses for 120 PEOPLE is by no means a small feat - not to mention the huge number of plates needed. But, as soon as the show kicked off, our nerves were immediately calmed, as Chef Johnson and the whole team there put on a truly flawless performance for us! Everything from the pacing, to the hospitality, to, of course, the food, was truly top-notch. Attendee feedback was glowing across the board but, as always, several of the courses shined brightest as consensus favorites. Below are the top three courses, as rated by attendees on their feedback cards:


1st Place: Michael's Crab Begula - squid ink pasta with jumbo lump crab, beurre blanc, and lemon hollandaise

2nd Place: Wild Mushroom Risotto - with roasted wild mushrooms and parmesan cheese

3rd Place: Michael's Fried Chicken - with cream cheese garlic mashed potatoes
