- About Us -
Growing up, my friends begged their parents for candies—I'd ask mine for prosciutto. My love for charcuterie later informed my career path, leading me to a role as a marketing manager in charge of cured meats for a large French retail chain. The best part of the the job was meeting the artisans who made these products; I was drawn to their devotion to using traditional methods in order to achieve the highest quality.
In 2013, I moved from my home country of France to be with my DC-born husband. Since moving to the area, I'd been searching for a place that reminded me of home—a place to unwind, drink a glass of wine, and share a charcuterie board with my friends. When I realized I wasn't going to find the place I was looking for, I decided that this was my chance to take my lifelong passion and create something new. And so, with the help of my husband and a dear friend, La Jambe was born.
La Jambe is a small independent business-- the product of a dream and a lot of hard work. We are a neighborhood bar where patrons can experience the best of the old world in an intimate space without any pretension. Our mission is to expose guests to the French palate through a carefully curated menu of wine, charcuterie, and cheese. Perhaps our passion for charcuterie will become yours as well. We hope you'll come give us a try.
