You guys, we got so fortunate to check out yet another participating restaurant for San Diego Restaurant Week and this time at Parc Bistro-Brasserie! SDRW kicks off THIS Sunday from January 20th – 27th and highlights some amazing restaurants around San Diego. With menu offerings for lunch starting at $10 and dinner starting at $20, there are options for everyone! Parc Bisro is located in Banker’s Hill, one of my favorite neighborhoods in San Diego because it’s conveniently located in between Downtown, Balboa, Park, and Little Italy!
Parc Bistro is offering both lunch and dinner specials for SDRW and we had the opportunity to check out their 3-course dinner going for $50 a person.
What It Includes
First Course: They had 5 different options, and we got to try their Dungeness Lump Crab Cake and Wagyu Beef Carpaccio. They were both very light starters and you also have an option for complimentary bread at the table served with butter and tapenade. It was a great start to our meal and we both enjoyed it because they were both things we wouldn’t normally gravitate towards!
SIDE NOTE: They also let us have a taste of their lobster mac and cheese (not on the SDRW menu) and beet salad and I kid you not, this is now our favorite mac n cheese in San Diego! The chunks of lobster with the perfectly melted cheese and the mix of bread crumbs were absolutely perfect! And if it’s not the SDRW menu that will keep us coming back, it’s definitely the mac!
Second Course: They had a great offering of both land and sea from salmon, trout, duck confit, chicken, and steak. I opted for the Pan Roasted Salmon which came with wild mushrooms, mashed potatoes, and beurre rouge. Ian got the New York Steak Au Poivre which came with sauteed seasoned vegetables, garlic mashed potatoes, and peppercorn sauce. Both were incredibly tasty! I love salmon and it was cooked perfectly and paired with the veggies was a great entree that felt like a fine dining experience. Ian enjoyed the steak and I had a little taste and loved it too!
Desserts: I cannot lie when I say dessert is my favorite course with these SDRW dinners. This restaurant by far had THE best dessert offerings, and I say that in a slight-biased tone because I love love love crème brûlée and Ian is a sucker for a good sorbet.
We had such a great experience here. Our server, “Uncle” Jerry was an absolute sweetheart and took great care of us and I would continue coming back just for the hospitality! We loved the overall dining experience and it felt like we were transported into a Parisian cafe inside. As I mentioned earlier, the food was incredible and we would honestly keep coming back for the mac n cheese, desserts, and to try more of their entree options!
