The French Room to Open for Dinner for a Limited Time Featuring Renowned Guest Chefs

After a two-year hiatus, The French Room (Adolphus Hotel) will open its dinner doors for a limited time with their ‘Be Our Guest Chef Series’. The collaboration features chefs and artisans who will showcase their craft paired with the timeless French Room experience, taking place on select days in October, November, and January.

An evening at The French Room has historically been a coveted experience, with countless special dinners and milestone moments taking place within the ornate dining room. “The amount of guest requests we continually receive for dinner service at The French Room is overwhelming, so we are thrilled to offer an opportunity for guests to join us for a one-of-a-kind experience,” says Nik Katz, General Manager of Food & Beverage.

The chef series launch will coincide with The Adolphus 110th anniversary and will truly continue the tradition of thoughtful dining this coming season.

To launch the series, The French Room will welcome Chef Laurent Quenoix for six nights on October 13 through October 15 and October 19 through October 21.

Originally from Sologne, France, Chef Laurent is the owner and Executive Chef of Bistro LQ in downtown LA. Hailed as one of Los Angeles’ best French chefs, he’s had a long and varied career in the city, including opening the award-winning 7th Street Bistro to being Executive Chef at Dodger Stadium, and now to his current passion project, LQ “Foodings.”
