Chic Yet Classically French Signature Wine Dinner at Bistro Bobette

Bistro Bobette
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
1209 East Cary Street

In everyday French life, the Bistro is the the family-owned neighborhood restaurant where the owners know you, the food is locally sourced and ingredients change with the season. Critically acclaimed Bistro Bobette is just that sort of restaurant - serving brilliant, fresh and satisfying French fare with a warmth that makes you feel special. Expect scratch-made dishes paired with a curated selection of highly regarded French and Virginia wine.

Please join Chef Francis Devilliers for a divine, scratch-made French Provencal-inspired wine pairing dinner in Bistro Bobette's beautiful private dining room.

  • Francis Devilliers, Executive Chef and Co-owner, was born in Paris, France and developed a passion for cooking, especially French Provencal cuisine, after he immigrated to the U.S. and settled in Washington, D.C., where he worked in various French restaurants.  He fell in love with Richmond's charm and readily accessible farmers- and seafood markets and decided to open Bistro Bobette with his wife and co-owner, Wendy Kalif.  The secret to the Chef's cuisine are the frequent trips he takes to the markets to buy his ingredients and the techniques he uses to coax the flavors out of the fresh food framed with classical French sauces, spices and flavor profiles.
