Le Bailliage du Greater Washington, DC Chapter

Upcoming Events

Summer Sojourn to Patowmack Farms!
Sunday, July 22, 2018

42461 Lovettsville Road
Lovettsville, VA 20180, overlooking the Potomac near Point of Rock, MD
540-822-9017

You are invited to join the Bailliage of Greater Washington as we once again travel to the Virginia countryside for a relaxed summer sojourn.

This year, we will be at The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm on a languid Sunday afternoon. Set on a hill in northern Loudoun County with beautiful views of the Potomac, the votive lit restaurant is located in the (air-conditioned) greenhouse and features organic ingredients from the 40 acre farm. For those locavores who have wanted to try the “uber-local” cuisine of Noma in Copenhagen, this is the closest we have in the DC area, with some ingredients foraged from the still-wild parts of the farm.

Chef Tarver King has cooked in the kitchens of Le Bec Fin of Philadelphia, the Inn at Little Washington, the French Laundry and the Fat Duck. He has been named “Grand Chef” by Relais & Château and recognized by Mobile and AAA, receiving 5 star and 5 diamond ratings!
