Peter Woolsey opened Bistrot La Minette five years ago yesterday. And come September, Woolsey will be celebrating that fifth anniversary on
September 11th and 12th September 18th and 19th with a special blowout five-course dinner.
But before that, Woolsey wants to celebrate his sous chefs who he calls “the best I have ever had.” This Wednesday and Thursday (August 28th and 29th), Nich Bazik and Paul Carrier will be pulling out all the stops for their special four-course, $35 tasting dinner.
