Service: Good. Our server accidentally poured congac instead of scotch on the first drink round, but fortunately that resulted in mama bird discovering a new appreciation for congac, so she wasn’t too upset. But typically when paying $10 for a drink, I like to receive what I’ve ordered.
Booze: Decent selection of unique spirits, nice wine list, and local craft beers. I sipped on an Old Fashioned that was quite tasty, not overpowered by bitters.
Chicken palliard | seared indiana chicken breast, lemon or mustard sauce, arugula, parmesan. served with choice of side dish $ 16.95
Brussels sprouts crisps | shaved brussels sprouts fried in duck fat
Pan seared trout | braised kale, fennel, red onion, jowl bacon, white wine, herb roasted potatoes $ 24
Delicious French bread with sea salt butter and a bed of mixed greens with simple vinaigrette started the meal. Honestly, it was my favorite part. My chicken was… meh. Not bad by any means, but let’s just say I had higher expectations. It was swimming in sauce. Good flavor, but a bit too much even for me; a little goes a long way with mustard. Salty, crispy, duck-fatty brussels sprouts—my choice of side dish—made up for it. Topped with a mix of braised kale, onion, fennel and BACON, the trout was also divine. “The best dish I have had in a long time.”
Kudos: Fresh, local foods. They have a beautiful covered patio, with very warm heaters included for cooler days! Dog friendly.
Overall: Another great Patachou restaurant… I’ve never had a BAD dish. Some items are a little pricey, but there are reasonable options. While Napolese remains my favorite, I’m excited to return to Petite Chou to further explore the menu.
