Baril's chef Ken Wallace has invited his mentor Georges Perrier to cook with him on the first Friday of each month, beginning March 3.
Since Le Bec-Fin closed its doors in 2013, Perrier has popped up occasionally for special events, but this will be a more permanent engagement for the chef.
Baril, a classic French bistro, will add a traditional Provençal bouillabaisse (kind of fish stew) to the menu for all First Friday dinners.
The dish is served family-style and includes a saffron broth, mussels, red snapper, clams, shrimp and potatoes served with slices of grilled baguette and rouille. It will be available for $25.
First Fridays will also include live music. On March 3, the band Drew Nugent and the Midnight Society will perform.
Reservations are encouraged.
Beginning Friday, March 3
267 S. 19th St.
