Chez Billy now open Mondays, hosting special regional dinners each Monday in October

Chez Billy, the nice French restaurant just north of the Petworth Metro, is now open on Mondays. They're also running new prix-fixe dinners on Monday highlighting regional cuisine from France. The first, this Monday, is on culinary traditions from Lyon. (They also said they'd be closing Sundays from now on.)

Here's more info on the events. Chez Billy is at 3815 Georgia Ave NW.

Starting in October, every Monday at Chez Billy we will showcase a three course meal of regionally-inspired fare from the diverse culinary landscape of France. Each month will highlight a region, city, or province, and the unique cuisine thereof. This month we will feature classic Lyonnaise dishes and wines from the neighboring Burgundy and Rhone regions.

This prix fixe menu is $40 per person for three courses, with three options for each course. Wine is not included, though your server will be happy to recommend appropriate and regional pairings, either by the glass or bottle. A la carte items from the prix fixe menu will be available in the bar area only. Regular menu items will not be available on Mondays.


October's menu options are as follows:

First course:

Soupe à l'oignon gratinée Lyonnaise - classic onion soup
Salade Lyonnaise - bacon, poached egg, frisée, croutons
Oeuf en Meurette - poached egg in Beaujolais, brioche, bacon, mushroom, pearl onion

Second course:

Saucisse Lyonnaise - roasted pork and pistachio sausage, lentils du Puy
Quenelle de Brochet - gently poached pike dumplings with lobster sauce and riz pilaf
Blanquette de Veau Grand Mère - creamy veal stew with potato puree

Third course:

Fromage Saint marcelin - local honey and walnut raisin toast
Crème Caramel
Tart Tatim
