This 1948 family run restaurant is one of the best French “country” restaurants in the theater district and has been a regular for our group for dozens of years. As in years past, they are welcoming us to celebrate another November tradition, Beaujolais Nouveau Day. At 12:01am on the third Thursday of each November, millions of cases of Beaujolais Nouveau begin their journey to Paris for immediate shipment worldwide: “Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé!” By the time it is over, 65 million bottles, will be distributed around the world. The grapes, by law, must be picked by hand (only Champagne shares this requirement too), and must come from the Beaujolais AOC. Beaujolais Nouveau is intended for immediate drinking, as it doesn’t improve with age and is best served slightly chilled. This fresh and fruity red is the result of a quick fermentation process that ends up with a tasty, clean wine that is enjoyed by palates all over the world. The most well-known producer is Georges Duboeuf, who is credited as one of the marketing geniuses behind the wine. As we know, it has become a worldwide race to be the first to try the new wine after the harvest and we will be drinking it all night at our dinner- the FIRST day it arrives! NOTE: this is a Beaujolais party. ONE glass of white wine is included to those who DO NOT drink the Beaujolais
