On Friday, February 10, Le Pichet chef de cuisine Brent Harding introduced several new dishes to the menu at Le Pichet. Sorry that I don’t have any photos, but perhaps you will be tempted by the descriptions:
*Grilled house-made pork-pimenton sausage served on a salad of radicchio, oranges, toasted almonds and orange glazed dates.
*Belgian endive salad with walnuts, Roquefort cheese and a mustard vinaigrette (a French bistro classic making its return to the menu at Le Pichet).
*Penn Cove mussels sauteed with fennel, spinach, apples and curry scented cream, served with pommes frites.
*Whole Idaho trout pan roasted with Jerusalem artichokes and mustard greens, served with a lemon-caper brown butter sauce.
Although it is still definitely Winter in Seattle, we are quickly approaching the time of the year when thoughts turn to the arrival of Spring and lighter dishes. We hope that these new dishes will fill the bill as warm, inviting fare that also speaks to the changing season.
