Covid has changed a lot of things, one of which was that we at Le Pichet stopped making breakfast pastries because our limited hours did not include breakfast time.
But now that we are open at 10am, we have heard from a lot of you that you miss the croissants, pain au chocolats and brioche we used to make. As a first step in that directions, we are now, once again, making our fresh brioche each morning! We are only making a few each day right now but will increase as demand increases!
Is there anything better than warm brioche and butter?
Here at Le Pichet, we have always been big fans of Lifelong and and the great work they have done in our community for years. Remember the NW AIDS Foundation? Chicken Soup Brigade ? Evergreen Wellness Advocates? The Lifelong AIDS Foundation? All these make up what is now known simply as Lifelong.
Dining Out for Life is Lifelong’s biggest annual fundraiser and has become one of Seattle’s favorite culinary events. Usually, we ask you to dine with us, then we donate part of every dollar spent to Lifelong. However, this year is a little different…that’s an understatement! Because restaurants are hurting, Lifelong is not askingus to donate a portion of our sales. Instead, they want everyone to come out to support restaurants that support Lifelong! And hey, if you to learn more about what Lifelong does and make a donation to them as well, so much the better!
Le Pichet still has tables available on September 24 so call or email to reserve now!
On August 3, 2000, Le Pichet opened its doors and started serving our neighbors for the first time. Given the current concerns about Covid-19, we won’t be celebrating with you like we hoped. Le Pichet is closed today, so instead we will have to settle for the fond memories we have made during 20 great years serving our friends and neighbors. Hope to see you here soon! THANK YOU EVERYONE!
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!
