Aimee's in Redondo Beach

Aimee's is a small French Bistro in a strip mall on PCH. The food was good, but not exciting. I had moules marniere to start (nothing compared to Plouf in S.F.) and my friend had escargot (served sans shell). We followed this with filet with a red wine reduction sauce and gorgonzola cheese and duck with a blackberry sauce. My friend thought the steak was tasty & tender. I liked the mahogany colored skin on the duck which had a delectable sweetness to it. The duck was a little dry, but very tender. It was accompanied by sliced, sauteed potatoes, a couple of spears of asparagus and two small carrots. The dessert selections were presented on a tray and looked OK but neither of us had room. The French burgundy wine I had was quite good. It's not a place to get terribly excited about but was quite good for this part of the South Bay. Personally, I loathed the accordian music that the owner insisted was "common in French restaurants". (I have never experienced this in any restaurant in France).

The accordianist roamed around the restaurant and when he was close he drowned out conversation.

There were many menu selections that I would return for...sea bass, osso bucco, etc.
