French Tapas, Crêpes & Bastille Day
[youtube id=”eufkaGbeSR0″] by Sophie Gayot Chef Jean-François Meteigner is attached to his French roots, which is great for diners, as La Cachette Bistro is one of the few remaining true French restaurants in the Los Angeles metro area. He has been jazzing up his menu with a line of French tapas for a while now. They are playful, and create fun interactions at the dining room table as tapas do. Watch my exclusive video with Meteigner who explains his tapas, and enjoy pictures of the dishes below. On Tuesdays, La Cachette Bistro offers more French tastes in the form of crêpes. I had them two weeks ago, prepared and baked by Pierre-Loic Denichou. Denichou, who calls his company Crêpes by Pierre-Lo, sets his cooking material on the terrace, where you can sample savory gluten-free buckwheat crêpes as well as sweet ones (from $6 to $8). Trust me, they are worth the detour, especially the savory ones that are so thin and crisp. And to celebrate France, make sure to join the Bastille Day party on July 14th. Starting at 6 p.m., the patio will be resonating with music from DJ Lyesse while you can indulge in the French tapas, the crêpes and an oyster bar.
