Did you miss out on Beaujolais Nouveau?

Grilled pork-braised lamb sausage served on baguette with marinated Napa cabbage and red wine mushrooms

Last Thursday, Le Pichet once again celebrated the arrival of the first new wine of 2019. For the 18th year running, the 3rd Thursday in November has meant our Fête de Beaujolais Nouveau and it was just a blast. A room-full of revelers was waiting for our doors to open at 6pm and our little dining room stayed packed all night long. Thanks to Ranger and the Re-Arrangers who provided live music and were really great. And I think it is safe to say that a whole lot of fresh, young wine was enjoyed by all.

If you didn’t make it, here is a photo from the menu of street food prepared by Le Pichet chef Vince Hall. And hey there is always next November!

Here is an article by NBC News that shows how USPIRG is working to provide consumers with the transparency they need to make informed choices for healthy eating.
