Join Us! Solidarity Dinner at La Chaumière and more...
Solidarity Dinner at "La Chaumière" on September 26 at 6:30 PM
For newcomers who are not yet familiar with the principle of the "CT Solidarity Dinners", you should know that you will also be supporting families in difficulty, as a $25 donation to the CT is included in each ticket. The CT distributed 33,000 euros in social aid in 2023 thanks, among other things, to this dinner program.
Come with friends or on your own and we’ll seat you at a table where you can meet others in a relaxed atmosphere.
These dinners are on weekdays, but they start early (6:30 p.m.) so that we can come straight from work and finish reasonably early too.
Gil started his restaurant career in his hometown of Nice, France, and continued in the United States.
With over 35 years of experience, Gil’s plan is to continue the tradition of serving French “cuisine gourmande” in an unpretentious atmosphere enhanced by the central stone fireplace and the consistent great quality of food prepared by Chef de Cuisine Patrick Moulet.
Participation in the dinners is a great way to get to better acquainted with the D.C. area restaurant scene and its great Chefs, to get to know each other, and to support the Comité Tricolore’s on-going charitable work.
