GREENWICH, Conn. – The Greenwich Historical Society will host a summer soiree at French Farm, a local historic landmark offering cocktails and dining en plein air, at 7 p.m. Friday, June 17.
The creation of the late David R. A. Wierdsma, French Farm features a series of garden rooms and vignettes that interweave specimen plantings with natural and man-made objects to form a living work of art spread across the remaining 4 acres of the farm.
Integrated throughout the property are most of the estate's original farm buildings, whose current inhabitants include heirloom poultry, geese, peacocks and sheep.
Chef Geoff Lazlo, managing partner and executive chef of Mill Street Bar & Table, will present a menu especially created for the event, to be accompanied by French wine parings. Lazlo, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, also has served as executive chef at the LeFarm and The Whelk restaurants in Westport. Most recently, he partnered with Bill and Lesley King, owners of the Back 40 Group.
The event will benefit the Greenwich Historical Society.
Cocktails will be served at 7 p.m.; dinner will follow at 8 p.m. Tickets are $150 per person. Space is limited. Click here to reserve tickets or call 203-869-6899 Ext. 12.
