Dining Under the Misters at La Brasserie Bistro & Bar

restaurant mistersAt the corner of one of the busiest intersections in the Coachella Valley, La Quinta’s La Brasserie Bistro & Bar stands out.  Plumes of beautiful mist create a welcome approach to the restaurant by bringing attention to this fabulous foodie find. La Brasserie prepares classic Parisian bistro style fare with an abundance of farm fresh and seasonal menu items in an authentic European setting. Serving up an elegant spread of food, wine and aperitifs, awarding winning French chef and owner, Emmanuel Janin and his wife Kara have blended traditional European influences with modern California cuisine.

 

Koolfog “Taste Team” Favorite:

Escargot de Bourgogne : Baked in Parsley-Garlic Butter this mouthwatering dish delicately delights the palette with authentic French flare.

La Brasserie’s friendly staff and impeccable service compliment the cooking to make for a perfect spot to enjoy good food and friends.  As always, our Koolfog “Taste Team” prefers dining under the misters…in this case, the sun-drenched patio garden area. The terrace is always full of life with an open and airy atmosphere to match its sophisticated yet casual charm.  Shade umbrellas and a robust misting system make dining al fresco comfortable and cool to ensure the lively environment maintains its pulse.  During summer months, La Brasserie celebrates the treasures of the Mediterranean showcasing lighter plates inspired by Spain, Greece, Italy and of course, France.  

Each week during the summer months, Chef Janin offers a special, every-changing prix fixe menu to entice the most discerning gourmands and fans of simply amazing epicurean experience.  The combination of pairings and flavors is a treat for the senses….colorful, fragrant, and sensational to the taste.  Like many desert restaurants, La Brasserie Bistro & Bar will close for vacation Sunday, July 28th.  We encourage you to take advantage of the diner feasts of the week in a fitting send off to Chef Janin, his family, and friends before they reopen for season on Wednesday, August 29th at 4:30pm.  We also suggest reservations for their first evening open to celebrate their return and the joy their kitchen has given to the area.
