Le Tour De France 2006 at Brasserie JO



WHAT: 



To commemorate the Tour De France, Chef Jean Joho is embarking on a dual celebration with his Boston and Chicago Brasserie Jo locations. As the Tour de France bikers travel through the various regions of France, Brasserie Jo’s daily menu specials will reflect the culinary influences of that region. The restaurant will air the race on a 42-inch television screen for the enjoyment of diners and loyal race fans.




Courtesy of WheelWorks of Belmont and Somerville, guests are welcome to enter a raffle to win a TREK 1500 bike, worth $1,050 (no purchase necessary).
