This week, a new kosher French restaurant has opened in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn, Chagall Bistro.
We purchased this restaurant a year ago, fixing it up, and making it a more upscale eatery. Being Jewish and from France, I wanted to open a restaurant with French fare that was kosher. I named the restaurant after the French Jewish painter Chagall, whom my mother, also a painter, loved. We have many (replica) Chagall paintings in the restaurant. I invite all to come and enjoy the atmosphere and the food.
Chagall Bistro is Kosher certified by the OK.
According to ParkSlopeStoop.com:
The menu was created by executive chef Jean-Claude Teulade, a veteran of the famed French restaurant La Côte Basque, and reveals a reasonably priced range of entrees from a saffron risotto with diced jalapeños ($18), to a chicken fricasse with mushrooms, duck prosciutto, and fingerling potatoes au jus ($24), to a 14-oz rib eye steak with house-made French fries and a brandy-pepper sauce ($38). The appetizers (e.g., bronzino carpaccio, duck pastilla) and desserts (e.g., orange souffle, creme brulee) are equally enticing.
Chagall Bistro will be open for dinner Sunday through Thursday only starting at 5 pm, with brunch available on Sundays from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm.
