Restaurant Week is great time to branch out and try something a little unexpected. San Diego may be best known for the fish taco, but why not explore the culinary landscape with a little taste of France? From downtown to North County, French delicacies aren’t hard to find in San Diego during this Restaurant Week:
You may have a view of downtown’s East Village, but at this elegant yet casual bistro, you’ll swear you’re dining just off a Parisian sidewalk. Prepared to be perfectly authentic, their steak frites paired with herbes de provence butter, green beans, yellow wax beans and honey onions followed by their famous chocolate pot de crème is the ideal meal when you can’t decide between haute cuisine and comfort food.
This warm and friendly French hideaway in the North County neighborhood of Santaluz recently welcomed new chef Michael von Euw. Sample von Euw’s fresh updates on classic dishes with Cavaillon’s Restaurant Week offerings, including a delicate smoked salmon appetizer, sumptuous beef tenderloin and sinfully decadent warm chocolate moelleux for dessert, and you’ll be delighted to have made his acquaintance.
I love this restaurant so much, I married it! Well, that’s not exactly true, but I did have my wedding there. The rustic French farmhouse setting is just as charming as the traditional peasant-style dishes. One bite of their melt-in-your-mouth coq au vin, and you’ll fall in love, too. Be brave and try the escargots – you’ll be glad you did.
