Vogue Bistro & Bar Restaurant Review

: France, in the far West Valley? It's true. What were once cotton fields, tumbleweeds and home to the occasional casual Mexican or hamburger shop, has now turned into a little Gallic retreat. A French chef, Aurore de Beauduy, has landed here at this chic café (check out the swank marble and leather bar) that features an all-day menu of nibbles like house-smoked salmon with crème fraîche, or charcuterie of pâté, sausages, meats and vegetables. Bistro fare includes hanger steak with brandied peppercorn sauce and frites, roast herb-garlic chicken, daurade, cassoulet and, of course, duck confit and foie gras. A few dishes unexpectedly wander the globe, like plantains, truffled mac ‘n’ cheese, spelt risotto and an awfully good "blue jeans" burger with cheddar and pickles on brioche. Daily specials showcase the chef's fine dining training. In keeping with the name, gold-framed flat-screen TVs broadcast runway shows, making it a very "Sex and the City" way to enjoy one of 12 martinis named after fashion giants like Dior, Versace and Chanel.

OUR FAVORITE RESTAURANT IN PHOENIX AREA
by lrocco on Tue Mar 03, 2009 2:28 am
 
We love this small family owned place. We’ve been coming here for the past 2 months after reading a review in Az Republic. We wanted to let everyone know that Vogue Bistro is now open on Mondays , for lunch and dinner. Also , their website says that they will be offering 3-course dinners every Monday. Last week we had an amazing rack of lamb , a salad and the best tiramisu I’ve ever tasted , all for $29. The portion was large and sever was nice enough to give us a heads up so we shared the entire meal. We both have days off on Mondays and in our neck of the woods there aren’t any good restaurants open on Mondays except for chain places. For years we’ve been going to Arrowhead and past couple of years to the Westgate, and now we can have a nice martini (or two) and drive only 5 min to our house. Thank you Vogue for coming to Surprise! A couple of money saving tips for those of you who frequently visits Vogue. Go to their website and sign up for VIP program: You’ll get $25 gift cert for every $300 spent, also they will email you all their promo dinners and specials, as well as invitations to wine dinners planned in the future (can’t wait for those). Download all current specials from their website’s EVENTS page. On one of our visits we’ve printed out a coupon for a free martini with a purchase of an entrée. Next time I’m bringing my girl-friends for lunch to try their famed Panini sandwiches, which they offer, for some reason, only at lunch time. We definitely will be coming back. I hope this is helpful for those looking for a great local spot.
 
Valentine's Day at Vogue Bistro

Valentine’s Day Dinner at Vogue Bistro was probably the best I’ve had since Mediterranean cruise in 1978. I’ve ordered French Onion soup and my wife Langoustine Bisque --- we’ve tried both and still can’t agree which one was better –both were excellent , although that perfect golden crust on French onion soup was alone worth the money. Lobster tail was succulent, juicy yet with a firm texture plated with hand-rolled potato gnocci , asparagus and delicious lobster stock . My wife’s grass fed fillet was perfectly medium rare and served with potato chateau infused with truffles. Our dessert was an amazingly presented two hearts -- one a chocolate covered chocolate gelato, the other -strawberry gelato. Both were paired with late harvest zinfandel. What can I say , other than ---I’ll be back.
 
Vogue Bistro --the best new restaurant in West Valley!

I've been dining at Vogue since their opening last year. I’m there for lunch or a dinner at least once a week. Having been a software consultant, I've traveled and dined in most of the world's largest metropolitan areas and that makes me more than qualified to say that in 10 months Chef Aurore and her husband managed to build a modern, vibrant, beautifully appointed and maintained restaurant with welcoming attentive staff and ,most importantly, absolutely amazing food. I can go further and say that combined they put Vogue Bistro on the top of my list of dining experiences. I’d like share with you that having lunch on their heated patio, even on a cold day is one of my favorite things to do when I am in town between my trips. As much as I love their dinner specials I must say that there is something about their lunch that keeps me coming back again and again. I don’t know if that’s the bread, chicken or both, but the chicken panini, in my opinion is what a perfect sandwich is all about, it simply can’t be beat. It arrives all warm and toasty with perfectly crusted artisan chiabatta. The first bite reveals a fine texture of a juicy cage-free chicken between the delicate layers of roasted peppers, zucchini and arugula, drenched in aromatic and savory fresh basil aioli. A side of juniper pickled daikon and red carrots that accompany this panini helps to cleanse the palate between the bites with a pleasant aroma and crunchy texture. Besides chicken they do have some other panini , like vegetarian, with meaty roasted veggies , mushrooms etc. , an excellent fish panini ( I love when they have cod or salmon) , and, of course , my second best personal sandwich – Vogue Burger. You, absolutely must try this miracle. I let you decide if it is the best burger you’ve ever had, but know this –natural raised angus patty that is lean, without any junk added, coarsely ground and prepared to your liking ( Med. Rare is my favorite), but it gets better --- fresh organic arugula, mild gorgonzola, juicy pieces of sweet apple wood smoked bacon and heavenly, caramelized pear/ onion chutney-- all barely fit under a giant brioche bun, just like the one on the picture posted by Stan, a perfectly captured shot. By the way thank you Stan for taking your time with pictures. Another favorite of mine is their quiche --- individually baked , bobbling hot with a perfect crust. They make different flavors every day. I love the smoked salmon quiche – very original. They also have some great salads, entrees, and several appetizers like escargot, fritto misto, and daily Tuscan flat bread, to name a few. Also soups supposedly the best in town. I haven’t tried their French onion soup yet---- that’s on my list of things to go as soon as I get back from LA. Keep up the good work Vogue Bistro !!!!
