Le Grand Bistro- opinions?

It looks spendy although they claim to do "everyday French" on Facebook. I never got to try Brasserie Rouge due to the fact that having twins tends to send your Dining Out Plane into the side of a mountain.. but I'm always drawn to French and French-inspired fare. They even do frogs legs! And those of you without souls can get your foie gras Torch- On (get it??).

I've read they do happy hour specials but can't seem to sleuth out what that exactly means in terms of offerings / prices (as the happy hour menu just looks like a smaller version of the regular one). Nice looking space and menu though for sure.

Anyone who's been to both- would you go here or to Z Cuisine?

Happy T-day !

  1. My wife and I have been to Le Grand once. We sat up at the bar and had great service from the Bartender (manager? owner?) Colin.

    Cocktails look to be mostly vodka and champagne based.
    Butternut Squash Soup - Nice, flavorful and served hot
    Gruyere Onion Tart - OK, a little skimpy maybe
    Le Grand Burger - FANTASTIC - I don't know if a burger is part of regular bistro fare, but this one was great, crispy crust on the beef, but still nice and pink inside.
    Marsielle Shrimp Stew - OK, but overpriced, $24 for 5 large shrimp.

    Overall, I would go back, the service and the atmosphere were excellent on my visit.

    I have not had the pleasure of Z Cuisine, but it is on my list.

    We had four dishes:
