Had a great experience at Chez Pascal. CP delivers first-class cuisine in a friendly, casual manner with a little neighborhood vibe. The menu was diverse but the cold night led me to the heavy stuff. The foie gras appetizer was spectacular. My heart begged for atherosclerotic mercy when I saw it, a large portion, made to seem even larger atop a crunchy, buttery support of some type of dark bread (advertised as ""chocolate""). Accompanied by a vanilla-infused garnish, the complimenting textures and flavors of this dish were wonderful. The cassoulet entree contained the expected duck leg confit along with other delectable bits of meats and homemade sausage. My partner dined on the lighter side, with positive comments on the crabcakes and grouper. Dessert was a rich almond torte, deliciously caramelized on top and bottom, and topped with pear ice cream. Go!
Pros: first-class, quality, casual
