We have reservations at the formerly incredible Bistro K, but w/the new chef I'm wondering. The new menu is very traditional French (escargots, stuffed mushrooms, frog legs, fois gras for appetizers - onion and turtle soups - sauteed monkfisk, john dory,scallops, coq au vin, duck, filet for entrees - millefeuilles, creme brulee for dessert) while we prefer Laurent's more inventive fare.
We're from Pasadena and want to try someplace new in SoPas as we've really covered the Pasadena places. We hope for good food, but in an unfussy setting which is what we loved about Bistro K. I'm hoping someone will go to Bistro K this weekend and post a report, but failing that - any opinions about an alternative?
Shiro we've done. I like Mike and Anne's but have never been for dinner so that's an alternative. Maybe Brigante although I cook alot of Italian and prefer something else when we go out. I've heard alot about Firefly on this site, but have never been. I think there are mixed chow opinions about Bistro de la Gare. Appreciate your advice.
