L’Hommage Bistro Francais Welcomes “Great Chef” Roger Wiles

Wednesday August 17, 2016

Georgetown’s loss as the iconic Bistro Francais closed this spring has translated to great excitement in Mount Vernon Triangle as legendary “Great Chef” Roger Wiles became Chef de Cuisine at L’Hommage Bistro Francais. Chef Wiles brings an impeccable pedigree, starting with his work as sous chef at À l’Ecu de France and chef patron at Own restaurant before becoming the executive chef of The Inn on the Park in London, UK. He then moved to Bermuda to become executive chef at Fourways Inn, and then on to the St. James Club and the Royal Antiguan Ramada Hotel, both in Antigua. In 1997, the Great Chefs television crew caught up with Chef Wiles at the Half Moon Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica, where they taped him late one evening and into the early morning for their “Great Chefs of the Caribbean” television series for the Discovery Channel. In 1997, Chef Wiles moved to Georgetown to run Bistro Français. A new menu has been rolled out under Chef Wiles’ skilled direction and you can try the full menu at Restaurant Week prices the entire week of August 15-21.
