Among other interesting dishes, his menu features foie gras a l'Alsacienne, Cassoulet, Bouillabaisse, and Choucroute de Colmar.
For those of you who are in New York, we need a precise head count, because we plan to organize transportation. So please let us know if you are coming as soon as you can. It is a bit easier for anyone who has a car, in particular if they live in New Jersey. If you don't have a car, let us know and we will try to help.
It should be fun! In the meantime, let me know if you have any ideas, comments, etc.
