Christmas Eve Dinner

  • Maximilien 81A Pike Street Seattle, WA, 98101 United States (map)

Christmas Réveillon 2017

In France, a "réveillon" is a long dinner, and possibly party, held on the evenings preceding Christmas Day. Maximilien can help you with the first part, DINNER!

Chef Potvin is preparing a traditional French feast for Christmas Eve that is sure to impress the most refined palate.

This special dinner will also feature the talented Bonnie Birch performing on accordion from 5:30 to 7:30pm. Bonnie began accordion lessons at the age of 7. Her primary teacher was Thorild Swanson from Stancatto School of Accordion. With his guidance, Bonnie developed excellent technique, music reading skills, performing skills, and the appreciation of practice and patience.
