“We are thrilled to open The Tavern to the public,” said Marilynn Wick. “Everyone who has participated in our Costume Museum tour and luncheon, has been overwhelmed by the beauty of our dining room, which incorporates many elements from the original Tavern on the Green restaurant in New York. From the dazzling chandelier to the table settings– these are all original pieces. And the beautiful garden scene wallpaper that graces the room is a photographic replica of the restaurant.”
Having been inundated with thousands of requests, Mrs. Wick implemented a plan to create a unique dining experience for everyone. She chose Chef William Walden to helm the kitchen and direct the equivalent of a gastronomic standing ovation.
Whether catering to music aficionados at The Wolf Trap or delighting the taste buds of Presidents, Secretaries of State, Diplomats and celebrities at both the famed L’Auberge and The Restaurant in Virginia, Chef Walden has garnered national acclaim for his brilliant interpretations and meticulous attention to detail.
“I am delighted to be the Executive Chef at The Tavern,” said Walden who has been the owner of two critically lauded restaurants and starred in an Emmy Award winning miniseries. “This venue offers an exceptional opportunity for me to expand my creative spirit. The theatre world instills such a dynamic energy; I am thoroughly inspired by this atmosphere.”
Chef Walden has expansive plans for the restaurant, but will build upon the program, act by act.
The menu will change for each production, taking cues from theatrical themes, and offering a price-fixe menu including a salad, choice of several entrees, and desserts, starting at $39. The restaurant all has a full liquor license and Chef William is expanding his burgeoning wine list. The Sunday brunch menu will offers an incredible depth of flavors including classics such as Eggs Benedict, Homemade Sausage and Bacon, Homemade Brioche French Toast and more delights. There is also a three course brunch selection which includes a choice of a Bloody Mary, Mimosa, or glass of champagne with a choice of appetizer, main course, and dessert for $49.
The Tavern Room is also available for special private parties including wedding receptions, Bar Mitzvahs, corporate events and more.
