The JW Marriott Washington, DC has brought the Le Petit Chef: An Immersive Dining Experience to the nation’s capital — what Forbes has described as “an animated 4D delight to watch.”
The experience consists of a multi-sensory, five-course culinary odyssey led by Le Petit Chef, a whimsical animated character that appears on every table through the use of state-of-the-art 4K projection. Throughout the meal, Le Petit Chef tells diners the story of the history, inspiration, and ingredients for each course served. As guests watch Le Petit Chef prepare the meal actual dishes are served by JW Marriott’s culinary team in unison with the animation.
Created by the world-famous artists of Skullmapping in 2015, Le Petit Chef: An Immersive Dining Experience has been touring the world, and this is the first time it has been presented in DC.
“JW Marriott Washington, DC is excited to bring this unique dining experience, which is unlike any other, to the city,” said Tushaar Agrawal, the hotel’s general manager. “One of JW Marriott’s brand pillars is to deliver distinctive, innovative, and nourishing culinary experiences. We want to offer guests this captivating, narrative show that will make diners look at their meals in an entirely different way.”
The limited-time Le Petit Chef: An Immersive Dining Experience is available Thursday through Saturday, with seating at 6:30 p.m.. and 8:30 p.m. The price per person is $179 exclusive of tax and gratuities, with an optional beer pairing for $20 or wine pairing for $30 per person. Reservations are available via OpenTable.
