Pascal's Bistro Restaurant Review: French-born Pascal Le Corre and his wife Karen have found a worthy niche for themselves in this suburban metro town. The bill of fare seems to select equally from both American and French traditions. At lunch, the popular pasta bar offers different kinds of pasta, various sauces, and numerous toppings (vegetables, chicken, garlic and so forth). Lunch also has its own menu, however, featuring freshly made soups (very good French onion), salads and sandwiches --- we especially recommend the curried chicken. At dinner, French classics such as boeuf bourguignon and steak au poivre take their places beside a red wine-braised lamb shank on stone-ground grits and classic Southern crab cakes. A kids' menu is also available. Among the wide range of desserts, the homemade profiteroles with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce as are French as it gets, while the Key lime pie speaks American. The wine list is short but contains some fine choices, including both American and French offerings.
