The Fainting Goat
6-Course Inventive American Dinner Event
There are a lot of restaurants in D.C., so for The Fainting Goat, a New American Tavern on U Street, to be named to Washingtonian’s 100 Very Best Restaurants List (2015 edition) is quite an achievement. Washingtonian applauded The Fainting Goat for its “unfussy, creative food, a generous list of brews, and familiar service, even to new faces.” Chef Nathan Beauchamp has an extensive resume, including stints working with notable chefs like David Burke, Tom Colicchio, and Jeff Buben. As Executive Chef at the popular 1789 restaurant, he won a Rising Star award from Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington. He also spent six years as an organic farmer in Minnesota, which gave him a special feeling for seasonal bounty. Diners can expect to find classic palate pleasers here, along the lines of a mac ‘n cheese with smoked gouda, wedge salad, short rib pot pie, and gnocchi (with goat cheese, of course). Chef Beauchamp will be on hand when we take over the restaurant for this event, taking your questions and sharing his food philosophy.
About the Host:
Executive Chef & Co-Owner
A graduate of NYC's Culinary Institute of America, Chef Nathan Beauchamp cut his teeth under celebrated chefs David Burke, Tom Colicchio, and Jeff Buben before taking on the Executive Chef role at DC's 1789 Restaurant in 2005, where he earned the RAMW’s Rammy Award for Rising Star Chef, as well as a Washington Post 3-Star review!
