Beaujolais Nouveau with French Morning across the USA

A kitchen with a dining table

It’s the beginning of the endless array of big meals, drinks with friends, and end of year gifts. Before the galette des rois, bûche de Noël, and Thanksgiving turkey, we’ve got Beaujolais Nouveau. This year, French Morning is launching “Operation Beaujolais” on November 15-16 with Maison Trénel Père et fils. Here’s the game plan:

Washington DC

On the night of November 15, celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau by Maison Trénel in Bistrôt du coin. On the program: show, DJ, and popping Beaujolais bottles at midnight. Reserve a table for two from 7-9pm or from 9:15-11:15pm by calling (202)294-6646 or by e-mailing [email protected]. Limited access to the bar until 11pm. ADDRESS
