Greenwich waterside hotspot l’escale threw a soirée last month to announce the arrival of executive chef Frederic Kieffer and director of operations, David Fletcher. The night was centered on spectacular culinary treats at the restaurant’s outdoor lounge area and bar. Kieffer’s menu included made-to-order lobster rolls and tuna tartar, a sprawling raw bar, bite-size burgers on rosemary buns, topped off with homemade ice cream and washed down with specialty cocktails. Some guests’ enthusiasm for the chef’s arrival was nearly as high their heels.
