Palais by Perfect Pie is the first standalone restaurant of pastry chef Bill Yosses following his popular pie-focused pop-up Perfect Pie and a stint at the now-closed, Four Seasons Restaurant. He was also the pastry chef at the White House when the Obamas lived there. The new restaurant serves French fare like a roasted duck breast with lavender and peppercorn gastrique, as well as American bistro items like grilled flatbread pizza and a burger. Yosses also has brought Jean-Jacques Rachou (best known as the owner of La Côte Basque) out of retirement to work alongside him in the kitchen from time to time, consulting on the food, and helping to expand the savory side of the French-accented menu. This event is limited to 24 people (more with restaurant approval).
Note: this event is in a private room on the 2nd floor of the restaurant, and there is a flight of about 16 stairs that you will have to climb.
Note: Consuming raw or undercooked meat, fish, shellfish or eggs increases the risk of foodborne illness.
