The Epicurean Bistro & Wine Bar Restaurant Review: Chef-owner Claire Pogue is a French-Canadian. Husband and partner Sandy Pogue is a wine connoisseur with a passion for French vintages. The combination results in warmth and enjoyment. Dishes have included frogs’ legs, garlicky and buttery, and easily flaked with a fork; and sweetbreads with tiny bits of chanterelle mushrooms, tender, nutty and tempting even for those uninspired by organ meats. Swordfish is lightly touched with a dash of fresh greens and seasoned just enough to complement the sweet flesh. For dessert, consider fruit tarts and classics such as crème brûlée, with a nice alternative of an artisanal and domestic cheese board served with warm nuts, fresh fruits and imported crackers.
