{ Tasting Menu at Bistrot }


January 2017 at Bistrot La Minette


Normandy is the entire reason why most of the western world associates French cooking with butter and cream. It is no accident. They are the largest producers of cattle and dairy in all of France. Camembert, the most popular cheese in all of France, hails from the region as does calvados and cider from their apple production. The beaches are known for the attack on D-Day but in Paris are better known for Deauville and Trouville, the Parisian version of the Hamptons. It is in Honfleur, a tiny seaside town where I first tasted the œuf de pêcheur that so many of you have enjoyed over the years at the Bistrot. Chef Kenneth Bush has created a fantastic menu that gives tastes of the seafood, dairy and cider. As usual the menu is $35 and $50 with wine pairing.  We are also offering a cider pairing, for those looking for the more “Norman” experience.  The dinner with cider pairing is $55.
