Hound & Mare Fine Dining Series: April in Paris at “Le Bistro Chien de Chasse et Jument”

An intimate fine dining event celebrating french cuisine and wine varietals with Chef Scott Riesenberger and Sommelier Laura Winter Falk

The image of “April in Paris” conjures up the reawakening of Spring after a long cold winter. Here in Ithaca, flowers bloom, birds sing, and the buzz of people embracing the warmer weather returns to Aurora Street.

On Saturday, April 30th, the Hound & Mare will transform into a Parisian Bistro, Le Chien de Chasse et Jument. Chef Scott Riesenberger, who trained at Le Cordon Bleu Paris, and worked under Michelin-starred chefs in Burgundy and the French Alps, has created an inspired menu of French cuisine that celebrates Spring in the Finger Lakes.  Sommelier Laura Winter Falk will share carefully-curated wine from both France and the Finger Lakes that showcases the nuance of the cuisine and the locally-sourced ingredients from which it is created.

Join us for an evening of French Haut Cuisine and leave the passport at home.
