The new D.C. restaurant, Béarnaise, is offering media members dinner Friday night along with a tour and Q&A with its chefs, Chef Spike Mendelsohn and Chef Brad Race, who are partnering with Mendelsohn’s sister Micheline Mendelsohn.
The dinner was originally attended to be lunch on Friday, but organizers pulled a last-minute switcheroo, making it Friday night so apparently more journos could attend.
Guests attending the dinner, which is set to start at 5:30 p.m. will sample the entire menu, which hasn’t yet been publicized. According to organizers, they can expect french onion soup, steak frites, brussels with bacon, escargot, bone marrow (?) and desserts.
Though organizers were eager to disclose that they would be serving bone marrow, they were not so quick to disclose which media organizations will be attending.
Mendelsohn and his fam also own Good Stuff Eatery and We, The Pizza. The new restaurant sounds a bit fancier, as it is inspired by Mendelsohn’s experiences in France.
