Garces Trading Company Restaurant Review

: This casual neighborhood bistro from Iron Chef Jose Garces serves lunch, dinner and weekend brunch with Garces brand coffee, imported olive oil and condiments to-go. At lunch, the plat du jour might be chicken paillard with pistachio and tarragon vinaigrette or steak frites, while dinner brings a chef's tasting menu for $40 or $55. Pizzas --- both thin-crust and deep-dish styles --- pasta, salad and straightforward fare such as roasted scallops or halibut en papillote round out the offerings. An 18-seat bar features its own menu that focuses on charcuterie, cheese and tartines, such as the Gascony (duck liver mousse, pickled shallot, plum and arugula). For dessert, choose among a rich old-fashioned chocolate cake for two or a seasonal macaron assortment. On weekends, brunch possibilities range from a $23 a person steak frites option for the table that includes sunny side up eggs, potato rosti and truffled sauce béarnaise to a $22 two-course meal with a basket of house-made pastries and coffee or tea, and à la carte choices.
