Summertime Kitchen Party at Cafe du Parc

 Michelin-Star Chef Antoine Westermann presented his new French-American Bistrot Menu and introduced us to the new Executive Chef Arnaud Perreau.
We started our 11 course tasting menu with Deviled egg Antoine style.  I love deviled eggs, so I was instantly a fan of Antoine's version.
Next, Stuffed confit tomato with an Atlantic Daurade tartar.  Beautiful presentation and extremely fresh taste.
 I was so impressed with the Creamy Tomato Soup from my last visit, but the chefs wowed me again with a Chilled zucchini soup with goat cheese and fresh mint.
With each course, I thought, "they're not going to be able to top that...," but they kept bringing out dishes that were better than the last.  I enjoyed the artichokes "a la Grecque," roasted cod cheeks with parsley and garlic oil.
Then salmon scaloppini, smoked salmon butter and lime zest
Don't these photos make you hungry?  I'm ready to go back for seconds.  Next we tried the fresh flavors of the Summer vegetable aioli, poached flounder, light mayonnaise with fine herbs.
As if it couldn't get better, it did.  Veal medallion, nicoise ratatouille and almond raisins
My favorite dish was the lamb shoulder parmentier and fennel puree.
 Hope you have room for dessert to try the Caramelized pineapple with pineapple sorbet and coconut biscuit along with rice pudding with strawberries and lemon sorbet.
Bon Appetit!  Cafe du Parc is well worth the trip!!  Absolutely delicious food and some of the most friendly staff members.
