Craving Mexican, Mom and I dropped into Casa Vega at 7pm last night and were informed of a 30 minute wait. Too hungry to wait, we walked over to Le Petit Restaurant across the street and down the block, next to the Greek place.
What a surprise! We were welcomed in by the gracious staff with no wait and led to a lovely booth.
Mom and I split a mixed greens salad with baked goat cheese, just perfect. Honestly, I could have done without the candied pear, but the melty goat cheese made up for it. We also split the scallops with mashed potatoes and wilted spinach - delicious and perfectly prepared, plenty to share.
Was it earth shattering? No. But the staff couldn't have been nicer and down to earth. Loved the Parisian bistro setting and Mom LOVED the Charles Aznavour they were playing. And the dishes hit the spot for a lazy Wednesday night.
Oh, and I guess it's now owned by someone of Moroccan decent, so in addition to butter, there were these lovely little spreads served with the crusty bread.
As a native Valley Girl, I can't believe I've never been! So nice to be able to add to the list.
