A strolling all French evening in Pittsburgh’s West End.
We started with champagne (of course) and first course hosted by James Frederick and Gayle Irwin at the James Gallery.
After an artful opening, we progressed across the street to Lou Bucci’s Tartine restaurant for four more courses of French food and French wine!
