* Can't get to Jean-Louis at the Watergate for dinner, or can't afford to? Then stop at the Sutton Place Gourmet and pick up a few gourmet-to-go items. Famed Washington chef Jean-Louis Palladin has signed on as the company's consultant. He'll create four seasonal menus with recipes each year for Sutton Place's prepared foods department. Sutton Place Gourmet chefs will be trained in Chef Palladin's kitchens.
