THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Pleasant Peasant Restaurant Review

: Thirty years ago, a bunch of fellows took the plunge from the corporate hospitality world and put plenty of sweat equity into this little bistro. The guys were so broke they couldn't afford printed menus, so wrote the menu on small chalk boards for waiters to hold. It became a Peasant tradition that continues. So, too, was the classic French onion soup a tradition and lines formed outside the little place for freshly prepared bistro fare. Now, the place has changed hands, but remains The Pleasant Peasant. Come for the soup, but also the plum pork, grilled cutlets of pork with a tasty plum sauce on mashed potatoes and green beans. The crab cakes are popular, too. We liked the calamari, but wished there had been a mix of rings and tentacles for more interest. Don't miss dessert; again, the crème brûlée is the classic. Plenty of wines by the glass make this a good lunch spot, or pre-performance venue if going to the Fox Theatre.
