Le Pichet

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!

What does USPIRG DO?

Wondering what USPIRG does, and why we at Café Presse and Le Pichet are working with them to get the word out about the overuse of antibiotics? 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.

Then make the decision to join us for The Healthy Table on November 19th to support this great work

Happy 19th Birthday, Le Pichet!

On August 3, 2000, Le Pichet opened its doors and started serving our neighbors for the first time. We have all gotten a lot older since this photo was taken, but just like then, we are here everyday, brewing the morning coffee, taking hot croissants out of the oven, opening a bottle of wine and cooking up something good to eat. Hope you have enjoyed it as much as we have!

Thanks to all our friends and neighbors for 19 great years! See you here soon.
