Icon indicating the class is social distancing friendly Social Distancing Friendly

This quaint menu recalls the bistros, tiny cafe tables, and cobblestone streets of Paris.

Enjoy an elegant meal inspired by Parisian bistro cuisine and hand-prepared by professional Chef Charles. Begin with an endive and poached pear salad, a perfect complement of bitter greens with sweet fruit. Pan-roasted Brussels sprouts with a honey glaze adds a green vegetable touch to the meal, which centers on peppery steak au poivre paired with creamy and decadent potatoes Dauphinoise, a classic dish that has been a Parisian bistro mainstay for centuries. Chocolate pots de crème topped with Chantilly lace cream finishes off your elegant meal.

Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to accompany the menu, and may request pairing recommendations from the chef upon booking.
