This Week Make It La Jolie Bleue & El Centro for #TakeOutTuesday

March 8, 2021

For TakeOutTuesday this week, please order lunch or dinner from La Jolie Bleue and El Centro


When asked why the restaurants opened in Georgetown, here's how the restaurants responded (Learn more about these businesses on the GMS blog!): 

  • "I discovered the Georgetown community 5 years ago while I was a food vendor in the Georgetown Farmers Market. The Georgetown community is very helpful and nice. I always wanted to open a small place to serve healthy food here." - Tahar Slimani, La Jolie Bleue
  • "Chef Sandoval fell in love with the vibe of the Georgetown neighborhood – the community, the lively main street, what’s not to love? He had already opened El Centro on 14th Street and wanted to expand the concept to Georgetown, but with an expanded space and menu." - El Centro

La Jolie Bleue will offer homemade backlawa (traditional in Algeria) or homemade croissant for all Take Out Tuesday orders.
