Boeuf à la Bourguignonne and more: A Taste of Julia Child at Chef Mavro

HONOLULU – “Movie cravings satisfied here” Chef Mavro assures us as he fine tunes his home cooking recipes for Boeuf à la Bourguignonne and other French dishes shown in the new Julia Child tribute movie “Julie & Julia” opening in theaters Friday, August 7, 2009.

The James Beard award-winning chef who previewed the movie with several hundred of his friends last week, has created a special three-course “Julie & Julia Movie Menu” ($59) available Fridays and Saturdays starting August 7. He will be in the dining room welcoming guests and serving the boeuf à la bourguignonne tableside.

Chef explains: “After the screening so many people were craving boeuf a la bourguignonne that something had to be done! I’ve felt a connection with Julia Child ever since I developed a love of home cooking for my wife when I come back from the restaurant every night. And everyone in my kitchen has so much fun cooking this style of food. When it’s delicious it’s delicious.”

Although the 3-course Movie Menu is priced lower than the regular 3 course, all the Chef Mavro extras will be included: pre-appetizer, pre-dessert and the grand finale house-made sweets. Julia Child’s famous “reverse martini” ($9) will be offered as well as a special Morgan grand cru du beaujolais wine selection ($13 glass).

Advance reservations are required as seating for the after-movie menu will be limited. Call 944-4714, email
