Welcome to the Triangle Bailliage


The Triangle Bailliage de North Carolina is a local chapter of the Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs.  La Chaîne is a unique gastronomic society, headquartered in Paris,  with more than 20,000 members in over 100 countries.  There are about 150 bailliages in the United States with over 7,000 members, each headed by a Bailli (chapter  president).  Our Triangle Bailliage has about 40 members, including Professional Members who are listed individually on this site.  Most members live in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area but we have members in other places like Greensboro, Siler City and Rougemont.  The Triangle Bailliage celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2012.

Membership in La Chaîne provides opportunity to meet people who share a common interest in fine dining and good fellowship and to experience the finest culinary talent and service.  The US headquarters is on the Fairleigh Dickinson University campus in Madison, New Jersey.  Click here to learn more about La Chaîne in the US and worldwide.  There is no doubt that La Chaîne membership opens new opportunities for service and for fine dining and fellowship around the world.  If you are interested in attending an event as a guest or wish to join the Triangle Bailliage, contact our Bailli (chapter president and head poo-bah), Barbara “Bambi” Levine. 

Persons interested in membership are encouraged to first attend as guests and your interest is appreciated!   A special welcome is extended to members of other Chaîne bailliages - if there is something we can do to help with your trip to the Triangle area, let us know.

The Triangle Bailliage Schedule page shows the planned gastronomic pleasures for the season that starts in September and ends in June.   Events include black tie dinners, more casual dining experiences, and wine tastings.  Great care is taken by all invloved to showcase the highest quality of food and service; similar care is taken to match fine wines to the exclusive dishes served.  Chaîne events provide opportunity for an establishment to demonstrate its highest talents to a discerning and appreciative audience.  Many establishments use the event as motivational training for their staff.  

We strive for variety and adventure in Triangle Bailliage events.  Events illustrate that good food and service can be found in both expected, and sometimes unexpected, places.  Next Event provides more detail and registration information about the immediately pending gastronomic pleasure.  Our members are well-traveled and can recount fine dining experiences around the world, but all will tell you that some of the finest dining events they have ever attended were those of the Triangle Bailliage.   See Prior Events for details of the previous ones.

Professional Members, some of whom serve as officers of the Triangle Bailliage,
represent, work at, and own some of North Carolina's finest hotels, restaurants, and wine shops.  These members and their professional affiliations are listed on the Professional Members page.   We encourage you to visit those establishments.  Those who have lived in the Triangle area for a while know the outstanding gastronomic progress that has happened locally in the past twenty years.  We are proud to say not only that our Professional Members have helped make that progress possible but that they continue to train and encourage those who will make future contributions!
