Cafe Bizou

We were going to try out Siena a new Italian restaurant in Pasadena with our friends Kim & Pete. Kim went earlier in the day and picked up a menu. I wasn't sure how I would decide what to have since there were so many delicious selections, but unfortunately I wasn't going to have to decide because when we went back for dinner it was closed. I guess the guy forgot to mention to Kim when he gave her the menu that they were closed on Tuesdays...duh. So we decided on Cafe Bizou which never disappoints. The food is always fantastic and the corkage fee is only $2! The service is attentive and friendly. We had the tuna tar tare for an appetizer, which was delish. I had the Sand Dabs (caper butter sauce, mashed potatoes & steamed veggies), which I always order there and they melt in your mouth. Fantastic! Kim had a great pasta dish, black tagallini pasta, mushrooms & tomato in a lobster sauce. Rich, but good, I may even order it next time we go! Pete had a spicy shrimp pasta, and Chad had a crispy potato scaled salmon. We finished off with a sinful Bread Pudding with caramel sauce. Then we topped off the evening with a drink at Sushi Roku. It has a great atmosphere. We got home late, and I am the only one that had to wake up early for work the next day. Bummer.
