Here's news from a Celebrity Farm posting about Bonne Soiree, the French restaurant in Chapel Hill that we talked about as a prospect for a Proustian dinner out!
Some of you may be familiar with the Chapel Hill restaurant Bonne Soiree. To the sadness of anybody who has had the good fortune to enjoy their wonderful food and flawless service, chef/owners Chip Smith and Tina Vaughn have decided to close the restaurant on April 30th. The Independent published a very nice retrospective on Bonne Soiree, to which I can add very little. Tina has promised that wherever they end up, they'll find some way to get our goat cheese. (Years before they moved to Chapel Hill, they had a bistro at Kitty Hawk named Carolina Blue. Unbeknown st to us, Somehow our cheese was always on the menu, but I'd no idea how they got it there (Tina says that the wine truck brought)
Before Bonne Soiree opened, they hosted a dinner here at Celebrity Dairy. And, schedules permitting, they'll host a final dinner here after closing the restaurant. Probably our May 15th dinner.
I'm sad that alpha is followed by omega, but it will be a celebration you won't want to miss. I'll post confirming details about the sendoff dinner.
