The French gem Plume is housed in the recently refurbished 1920s hotel The Jefferson. British Chef Damon Gordon trained under some of the most respected French chefs in the US and UK, from Alain Ducasse to the Roux brothers. His dishes sing with unrestrained French elegance, and every so often a nod to his West Indian heritage—like the spice of the Madras curry sauce in his Vol-Au-Vent of Caramelized Sweetbreads, Seasonal Baby Vegetables, Bittersweet Apples, and Madras Curry Infusion. Sommelier Michael Scaffidi set about building a wine list to complement Gordon’s French cuisine with the hotel's namesake, Thomas Jefferson, in mind. Plume is now known for their impressive selection of half bottles that offer the same quality of experience to diners and encourage them to try some of Scaffidi’s more esoteric finds.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Vol-Au-Vent of Caramelized Sweetbreads, Seasonal Baby Vegetables, Bittersweet Apples, and Madras Curry Infusion
