Pescadou Bistro: It’s Where To Get Foie Gras While You Still Can.
Must have passed it a hundred times on Newport Boulevard and finally dined in. It was a Wednesday when there is no corkage fee. We didn’t know it until we saw patron after patron walk in with a bottle of Wine. Next time I’m bringin’ a bottle too (most did), and won’t feel stupid — Always thought it awkward, but it’s smart when no corkage. Who’s stupid now?
Enlightened is the word — We ordered from the restaurant week and regular menu, as many French specialties sounded good, and previously reported about Pescadou Bistro’s Paté.
Don’t have exact names of the pictured here, but confidently state ALL was a pleasure.
A toast with Wine on the tab, to the Paté, Salad with Wild Boar Salami and Gold Potato, Cream of Cauliflower Soup, Grilled Lamb Chops and “Gigot” Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb. Santé!
And to one of the best desserts I’ve ever had — It doesn’t look all that, especially in the photo below, but DANG, it was taste-TEE and unfortunately not on their regular menu. It should be.
Described as an Ice Cream Parfait with Candied Fruit and Red Raspberry Sauce, it was extraordinaire. I hope to have IT again. And Foie Gras, before the end of the year (preferably on a Wednesday) — It’s at Pescadou Bistro, until it’s banned from being sold in California next year. I’m not keen on the politics of it and recommend the Bistro become a speakeasy for it. There’s a lot more to say and write about it, but on a different blog.
Back to Pescadou – Stop in for dinner (only) ahead of passing it by. It’s romantic too.
