Le Bailliage de Greater Washington, DC
The Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is the world’s oldest and largest international association of gastronomy with 25,000 members in nearly 80 countries. In the U.S. there are over 6,300 members in over 100 local chapters, which are known as bailliages.
The Bailliage of Greater Washington, DC celebrated its 50th anniversary in October 2017 and is one of the most active in the country. Members enjoy discovering and experiencing the best of the Washington area’s culinary landscape at events that range from black-tie galas to exquisite dinners at Michelin-starred restaurants to casual “Chaîne on the Edge” events that showcase the best of Washington’s eclectic food scene. The Washington bailliage is one of the very few that maintains its own wine cellar.
Members include many of the DC area’s leading chefs, food and beverage professionals, and hoteliers at some of Washington’s finest establishments, along with those who simply enjoy great food, wine, and camaraderie. All share the excitement, energy, and joy when they raise their glasses in good cheer and say “Vive la Chaîne!”
