La Côte D'Or Café
Anniversary Dinner

Dear Friends,

Thank you for making our Julia Child themed dinner a great success.  To cook from Julia Child’s cookbook was a challenging and rewarding experience because I wanted to follow her recipes exactly.  Like Julia said, “If you don’t like butter, use cream.”  As you know, I was the Maître d’E at the French Embassy for two years.  For our next event, I would like to prepare for you the favorite dishes of the Ambassador and his guests.


6:30 PM

Cheese Soufflé with Poached Eggs and Foie Gras
“The Favorite of President Gisgar D’Estaing”


Timbale of Dover Sole and Salmon
“The Favorite of Ambassador Lucet”


Tournedos Rossini
“The Favorite of Ambassador Kosciusco Morizet”


Baked Alaska
“The Favorite of Mde Lucet”

There will be live accordion music throughout the evening.  We will also be celebrating the restaurant’s 22nd anniversary!

The price for the dinner will be $ 49.50 plus tax, gratuity, and beverages.

La Cote d'Or is Open for Business!

Dear Friends,


Some of you may have heard about the incident that occurred after we closed on Monday, October 27th.  Unfortunately, someone broke into La Cote D’Or and vandalized the establishment.  We are happy to say that no one was hurt, and we are now open our normal hours for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Nothing will hold back the La Cote d'Or team!  After 22 years of serving the Arlington and East Falls Church community, we are not going to let this setback affect our business or our attitude.  We are very grateful for all the encouragement we've received these past few days from our friends and patrons.  Your continued support means the world to us!
