Located in the heart of historic Old Town Alexandria, La Bergerie restaurant was founded in 1974 by the brothers Bernard and Jean Campagne-Ibarcq, who emigrated from France and brought their unique style of French and Basque cuisine to America. This unique style of cooking won the restaurant immediate recognition from food critics and customers alike.
In France, the name "La Bergerie" refers to the sheltered and protected area where a shepherd keeps his flock during a storm. It was that evocative sense of protection and care that led the original owners to select a name that would reflect both the fond memories of their youth in France as well as their concern for the well-being of every one of their dining guests.
That commitment to culinary excellence and to a warm tradition of hospitality started in 1974 is now continued by Laurent Janowsky, the restaurant's new owner since 2000, and his wonderful staff. Under Laurent's skilled supervision, La Bergerie continues to set the standard for regional French cooking in the area and continues to be recognized as one of the premier French restaurants in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
And as always, we look forward to caring for you as one of our guests at La Bergerie.
