#CassouletFeast at 2941

An elaborate dinner of Spanish fare with fantastic French wines. Chef Bertrand Chemel pulled out all the stops for the recent Cassoulet Dinner at 2941 Restaurant. The 3 course dinner was paired perfectly with wine selections from the Sommelier Jonathan Schuyler and Chain Bridge Cellars.

A great way to start any wine dinner, Cava!

This dinner was fabulous and I look forward to many more dinners at 2941. Next up, a Spice Dinner on March 23rd, 8 courses, $68!! 

With their recent renovations and price changes, 2941 isn't just for an anniversary or celebratory dinner anymore. Check out their new menus and visit them tonight!
