  • WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Hay-Adams, one of the world’s leading luxury hotels, just announced its Lafayette Restaurant will now be open for dinner on Saturdays beginning January 25 to share the culinary creations of Chef Jaime Montes De Oca. The Lafayette, a fine dining restaurant offering world-renowned cuisine and known for its power lunches and dinners during the week, will soon become the most sought-after restaurant to begin one’s Saturday night. Inspired by the seasons and sustainability, the Chef will continually present dishes that invigorate the senses.

     

    Chestnut Soup and Fig Marmalade Crostini with Red Leaf Baby Romaine Caesar, White Anchovy and Croutons, and Roasted Grouper, Red Russian Kale, Yellow Carrots, Baby Potato and Lobster Sauce introduce the Fresh From the Farm menu inspired by the Chef’s desire to use “fresh and healthy ingredients that everyone will enjoy.”

     

    Chef Montes De Oca also incorporates ingredients from Path Valley Farms, a collective of Pennsylvania Amish farmers, to further enhance the farm-to-table dinners offered at the Lafayette Restaurant. For dessert, Pastry Chef Josh Short creates a decadent Golden Delicious Apple Tart with Bourbon Vanilla Ice Cream.

     

    “A good menu should challenge and excite the guest as much as the chef,” says Montes De Oca, who was raised in New York and inspired to cook by his Puerto Rican grandmother and Colombian nanny.

     

    “We are looking forward to offering dinner on Saturday nights so weekend guests can now savor the same fine dining experience offered during the week,” says Hans Bruland, Vice President and General Manager of The Hay-Adams. “Chef Jaime Montes De Oca makes each dish delicious and memorable.”
