Bernard O's and the French Market Grille

nutrition | Dec 17, 2006 08:25 PM

I was so thrilled, that a French flavor La Bastide, opened in Scripps Ranch closer to home. Tried it a year ago, and found the portions small. Same for the restaurant week selections on another occasion.

So have continued going to the French Market for a Calves Liver fix, and Bernard O's for mussels and other variety. Never disappointed at either place. The Mussels at La Bastide are farmed, while at Bernardo O's they are Carlsbad mussels, not farmed. Now I learn that the Chef at Bernard's, who I met last month, used to be at La Bastide. Well, this Friday nite at Bernard's the musseles and the Filet Mignon were excellent. I am so grateful that the small tasting portions at La Bastide did not follow the Chef to Bernardo's, so I have that for regular visits! The fish at Bernardo's on previous visits has always been suberb! I have never been disappointed eating there over several years!

I would not hesitate recommending Bernard O's to anyone looking for a wonderful meal.
