INGREDIENTS is opening in North Glendale...finally.
Ooops...the borads didn't let me finish the post...hmmm.
So, here it is.
As y'all know, I LOVED Bistro Verdu and pretty much wept when it closed....I've waited for the Chef of Bistro Verdu to open his new little gem, just up the street from his former spot, and now the time has come for me to celebrate!!!
Here's the email I just got from them:
friends of Bistro Verdu and Ingredients,
as you know, the bistro is closed (as of july 07). not to worry, we are currently searching for a new location and hope to re-open soon.
well, finally the retail shop is opening. We are opening the first phase of the store on Friday, Dec. 7th. We will offer a selection of artisan foods both domestic and imported, including a decent size selection of cheeses, cured meats, oils, vinegars, olives, etc... The second phase of the shop(small bites menu for dine in or take out) will begin in a couple of weeks and will include some of our favorites from the Bistro menu. Stop by and pick up some ingredients for home, holiday party or picnic basket and remember artisan foods make great gifts for the foodies in your life!
tuesday thru saturday 11am to 7pm
coming soon, extended evening hours and small bites menu.
we will keep you updated on our progress with a new location for bistro verdu, meanwhile, feel free to visit us at the retail shop, any unused bistro verdu gift certificates will honored at the store.
thanks for all your support. hope to see you soon - michael

I think the new year will bring the sous vide (if that's how you spell it" goodies...mmm, I can't wait.
I got some great french sheeps milk cheese and some marcona almonds that they fried up "in house" and some lomo....all were a big hit with my friends.
I will defintiely be see quite a bit of this new great addition.
Outstanding! So glad to hear it's arrived. I've been curious and waiting for so long that I gave up looking for it. Sometimes, business's gestation periods in Montrose are what-the-hell's-taking-so-long long. We were just at La Cabanita tonight (and our food was nearly hot--wow!)--I should have eyeballed the block as we were heading home.
Looking forward to stepping in the door. Bonne chance!
Such a great place...they had a 5 course "swine-a-licious" menu a couple of weeks ago...way too good of a time was had that night!
The food, the people, way too much wine and bubbles...it was great!!!
Too bad I wont be able to make the French Country dinner night because I know the guys down at Rosso are gonna be having a hand at the wine pairing for the evening so I know it will be great.
If anyone goes, please let us all know how it goes!
Oh, y'all gotta try the duck confit salad...they serve it at lunch and on the weekend small bites menu...sooo good1
