We will have an opportunity to taste delicate dumplings, long braised stews, wild game and unexpected combinations of spices — from coriander and cardamom to saffron and sumac.

This is a family owned restaurant giving homage to a country which made has many contributions to civilization over the millennia.
Tom Sietsema of the Washington Post says, “The Afghan repertoire…always makes my heart beat a little faster…Cooking from the heart is half the reason I am here, Old World Hospitality…accounts for my presence, too.”

You are invited to join the Bailliage of Greater Washington, DC on our Annual Summer Sojourn
We will be welcomed by Vice Echanson Honoraire Luca Paschina for a tasting of four reserve wines in the Piedmont Arcades overlooking the vineyards (or on the patio if it’s raining) accompanied by four assaggini from Chef Spencer Crawford. We will then savor a seated five‑course seasonal luncheon in a private room with each course paired with a wine from the vineyard. We will also have an opportunity to taste a rare older vintage of Octagon, Virginia’s most iconic wine.
If there is sufficient interest, we will have round trip transportation going from Bethesda to Barboursville with bubbly and sushi provided by Maître Restaurateur JayZ Wu and his team at Sushi Oishii in Rockville. The bus or van will leave in the morning from Bethesda and depart Barboursville in the late afternoon.
The event is on a Friday to give confrères the option to spend the night in one of the beautiful rooms on the estate or at one of numerous nearby hotels. (See the Barboursville Winery website, https://www.bbvwine.com/visiting, for more on area lodging). For those who are spending the night on the Barboursville estate, there is the option of attending the local Shakespeare Festival’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at held outdoors in the ruins on the estate on Friday evening. If you are staying at the estate and attend the play, there will be a complimentary picnic basket dinner along with reserved 1st or 2nd row seats.

Fall Feast at Patowmack Farm

SAVE THE DATE!
We enjoyed the amazing cuisine of Tarver King at Patowmack Farm in July, 2018, finding it to be one of the most interesting, delicious, and creative restaurants in the Washington area. Specializing in a combination of cultivated and wild-foraged ingredients, Chef King is the closest Washington has to Rene Redzepi of Noma Restaurant in Copenhagen, as he creates an über-locavore approach to fine dining.
Due to the spectacular event we had here in the summer of 2018, and by popular demand, we are returning to experience the bounty of the fall season as interpreted by Chef Tarver King. It will be held in the late afternoon on Sunday, October 27th so that everyone can enjoy the stunning views and bounty of fall while sharing the camaraderie of the DC Bailliage.
