Frederik de Pue‘s new restaurant Menu, which will replace what was Azur in Penn Quarter, isn’t set to open until January. But you can get an early taste of dishes from Menu’s third floor bistro and bar at de Pue’s Shaw restaurant Table from Dec. 9 through 11. A three-course menu will be available for dinner for $45 per person. Tickets can be reserved by calling (202) 588-5200 or emailing email@example.com.
De Pue will also be testing out dishes for Menu at Table throughout the month of December. That includes creations from pastry chef Jason Gehring, who recently left Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken to work at Menu.
In addition to the bistro and bar at Menu, there will also be a cafe and market on the ground floor with local produce as well as sauces, gelato, charcuterie, cured and smoked fish, sandwiches, and more.
