Julia Child Tribute

July 31-August 2

Chef Julia Child, a beloved American icon and culinary celebrity, passed away in 2004, just two days before her 92nd birthday. This year, on August 15, 2012, Julia would have been 100 years old. In honor of this centennial birthday, Vincent’s will be celebrating with special events, menus, and contests. Check our special Julia page and Facebook page often, as we will be adding to it daily.
