If you are feeling the draw of fall food, Chef de Cuisine Vince Hall has just added a trio of dishes to the menu at Le Pichet that will fit the bill perfectly. Enjoy!
New for Fall 2019, Pumpkin Pecan coffee cake. Miam Miam.
At the Broadway Farmer’s Market today we, found some really beautiful organic Charentais-style melons, so fragrant that, even uncut, their aroma fills the kitchen. The Charentais is the famous melon of Provence in SE France, know for its wonderful, sun drenched flavor and firm texture. The good people at Tonnemaker Farms specified that these can’t actually be called Charentais, as they are not the exact same species but a hybrid that stands up better to the cool PNW nights.
The melons I purchased for Café Presse are currently ripening in a warm corner of the kitchen but should be ready to serve Tuesday or Wednesday, watch our facebook page for a heads up when we are offering it as a daily special. I am planning something simple to feature the pure summer flavor of the melon:
Sliced Charentais melon sprinkled with lime juice and piment d’Espelette, served with sliced jambon de Bayonne
Tues July 30 and Wens July 31 2019
Viewing starts at 5:00 pm each night
No reservations, no cover, everyone is welcome!

New to the wine list at Café Presse and Le Pichet! The “Ju de Vie” rosé from Domaine de la Gravereirette is ideal for summer quaffing or as a match for summer dishes.
Le Domaine de la Gravereirette is located in the heart of Provence, along the sunny southern reaches of the Rhone river, between Avignon and Arles. Winemaker and owner Julien Mus works his 20 hectare property using organic and bio-dynamic methods and is Demeter certified since 2015. His 2018 rosé is made with a blend of Grenache and Syrah grapes, for a wine that is both summer refreshing and mouth filling enough to pair with tomatoes, chicken, pork or oily fishes (sardines, mackerel or salt cod, anyone!).
The summer is short, try it while you can, including during Happy Hour, when all our bottles are available to enjoy here at Take-Out prices!
