The sleekly modern 2941 is an oasis in a land of corporate cement. Here 2010 Rising Star Bertrand Chemel has found his own resting spot in an idyllic place where you have to avoid bumping into Rodin sculptures and Dalis in the herb garden. The contemporary Gallic fare Chemel honed under the tutelage of industry figurehead Daniel Boulud is reinterpreted through the lens of Americana and Virginia’s bounty. Pastry Chef Anthony Chavez’s passion for French pastries and entremets colors his modern American desserts. Take the humble American blueberry for example. Chavez’s Duke blueberry parfait and blueberry-yogurt panna cotta get a hit of savory acidity and Gallic flair thanks to the lemon-thyme crémeux and wildflower honey croutons.
