New York City

Please join us for a memorable evening of food, wine, and entrepreneurship.
Rouge et Blanc is a French-Vietnamese restaurant nestled in the heart of Soho. The New York Times awarded Rouge et Blanc two stars with critic Eric Asimov making a special note of the  "the thoughtful list of French wines." Owner Tom Cregan developed his skills at notable restaurants like Chanterelle and Beacon and  brings more than 20 years of wine-tasting experience from the regions of France.   In 2011, he placed eighth in the Best Sommelier in America Competition.   Likewise, the restaurant proudly boasts an impressive French wine list. The name Rouge et Blanc is an homage to the wines of France and to the classic Stendhal novel. Chef Macks Collins (Foliage, Jasana Polana Country Club, C.I.A.) has created an east-meets-west French and Vietnamese-inspired menu.  The decor is reminiscent of the elegant French colonial style so prevalent in Saigon during the 1940s.

As for the wines, sommelier Tom Cregan has selected a Premiere Cru white Burgundy, a rosé from the Loire Valley made from the Grolleau grape and a red wine from the Ventoux appellation in the Rhone Valley made predominantly with Syrah.

Attendees will also enjoy small accompanying plates of food.
