Le Grand Bistro Americain

This gem of a restaurant at Carillon Point in Kirkland, WA is sure to please.  The visit took place nearly six months ago, yet I thought it worthy to mention.  Le Grand Bistro Americain serves up great views of Lake Washington, parking, service, and French/American style steaks, raw bar, and more.

Le Grand Bistro just happened to be the restaurant of choice during last October’s Seattle Restaurant Week. http://seattletimes.com/seattlerestaurantweek/ It also has participated in http://www.dinearoundseattle.org/ The evening started out with a Bordeaux ~ ch. le graves barrau ’06, Cabernet – Proletariat and a bubbly – Dom. Carneros Brut ’06  and then we moved on to the 3 courses for $28 options.  We were very impressed with how the manager stepped in to assist with service when everything was happening at once (it got busy!)

All choices made were enjoyed completely:

Wine – Cabernet Proletariat

Appetizers –

  • Oysters on the Half Shell four, with mignonette
  • Chef’s Soup
  • Charcuterie (Choice of 2) rillauds, country pate, jambon cru, rillettes

Entrées –

  • Moules Frites mussels steamed with white wine, bacon, parsley, touch of cream, served with french fries  A suggestion:  wear a bib 🙂
  • Boeuf Bourguignon stew of beef with bacon, red wine, pearl onions and mushrooms

Desserts –

  • Glaces
  • Creme Brulee
  • Fromages (Choice of 2) comte, delice de bourgogne, bleu de basque, ossau iraty, cirrus

Check out the menu options for happy hour, lunch, dinner, and how about brunch? It looks delicious!  http://www.bistrolegrand.com/menus/
