Throughout 2023, Le Cavalier will offer throwback dinners to honor the rich legacy of the Green Room in celebration of  HOTEL DU PONT's 110th anniversary.  The culinary team has spent days scouring the archives of old menus from the restaurant's own 100+ years of operation, and we look forward to assembling some of the top dishes for these special dinner experiences.
