Cafe du Parc at the WillardOpening its doors on April 2, 2007, the Cafe du Parc - located in the former Chanel Boutique, next to the Willard InterContinental Hotel, Washington, DC - is overseen by one of Europe's top Michelin-starred chefs, Antoine Westermann, who supervises the menu to ensure that his vision of French cuisine is appropriately transposed in an American setting. Cafe du Parc will be led by Willard Executive Chef Daniel Kenney and Westermann's hand-picked brigade trained by the master in Paris. The restaurant embraces classic bistro cuisine with moderate pricing ranging from $6 to $19, serving dinner, lunch, afternoon "petit plats" (small plates), breakfast and casual takeaway items. An open kitchen highlights the upper level Cafe du Parc and seats 96 people - accessed by a grand staircase and an elevator. Menu items will include items such as "Le pâte en croûte façon Antoine Westermann" (Antoine Westermann's Pate in a crust), "Les paupiettes de veau" (stuffed veal fillet bundles) "Le confit de Canard" (Duck confit) and vegetarian options like "Les tomates farcies aux legumes" (vegetable-stuffed tomatoes.)
