COMME CA - Bastille Day Brunch

UPDATE: Comme Ca is not doing the BBQ this year so the regular menu will be available along with specials. The App is Potted Duck Rillettes, Hibiscus, Chicharon and Summer Greens and the Entrée is Leg of Lamb Provencal, Piperade, with La Vender Thyme Jus. They also will have a fresh bounty of radishes and heirlooms from Primetime Farms. YUM!__________________________________________________

Well, we normally stay off the strip because it doesn't fit Dining & Vining's premise of local and sustainable, but my good friend, Sous Chef Dan Laferriere, assures me that Chef/Founder David Myers and Executive Chef Brian Howard are into the farm-to-table movement among other sustainable ventures and that they even shop at local Farmers Markets from time to time! Here is proof: http://primetimefarms.com/2013/05/31/an-executive-chef-farm-fresh-creation-by-brian-howard/

Now, D & V has only done a French Restaurant once (Marche Bacchus), so what better occasion to do it again than Bastille Day? What is Bastille Day you ask? Well, it is French National Day and it commemorates the 1790 Fête de la Fédération, held on the first anniversary of the storming of the Bastilleon 14 July 1789. There are celebrations down the Avenue des Champs-Élysées and even world wide with many cites in the US as well. You can gather more information here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bastille_Day

I made reservations for 14 of us and I am sure the restaurant will be able to accommodate more of us if a waiting list occurs (The 15th person is Dan and he is working for us that day behind the scenes). A link to the current Spring Lunch menu is here http://commecarestaurant.com/las-vegas/wp-content/uploads/04-01-13-LV-LUNCH.pdf and as you can see it isn't a cheap place to dine and vine. Hopefully, my friend Dan will be able to get us some appetizers on the house, but I can't promise anything. I am going to set the bar high with the RSVP deposit, but remember, you get it back so it's like buying brunch in advance!

As usual here is a good little review: "My most recent trip to Comme Ca was to for happy hour, and I went with an empty belly, ready to eat and drink. I ordered their quite famous Comme Ca burger, and it was delicious. I had it prepared medium well and I asked to have them hold back on the amount of fries, because the sheer amount of fries they put on the plate is overwhelming.

The burger was simply amazing; not too big, nor too small. It was quite perfect actually. It comes with two sauces; an aloli and ketchup. The french fries were so on spot that I ate all of them and I hardly ever eat all the fries that are presented to me at restaurants, but I could not resist these ones. Comme Ca has a very special place in my heart and I will go to the bar and restaurant on countless occasions."

OK, I am sufficiently hungry at this point! We hope you will join us for Bastille Day Brunch at Comme Ca!

Cheers -

      Wanna know what's WEIRD about that? I recognized the call letters KTLA from years of seeing it, it's channel 5 in LOS ANGELES! So I wonder if the Comme Ca in LA is even having a Bastille Day fling?

    Enjoy the brunch, unfortunately I won't be able to make it. Not sure if you had me as a yes? I had a hit-n-run out of town, so waiting for insurance repairs to be complete before getting home. Another time.

    • Kelly T.

      Sorry to hear about the H & R. Good to hear you are OK.

    NOTE: Comme Ca was voted best oysters in LV in the recent Las Vegas Weekly's 2013 special issue. ( http://lasvegasweekly.com/news/2013/jul/03/best-oysters-comme-ca ) We were there for happy hour last night, in fact. They had Kushi & Kumamoto oysters, my faves, and they were, as always, incredible. We also all shared a charcuterie plate (all items house-made, the country pate is beautiful), some snails (in the shell but each wrapped in bacon!) and a plate of the "special one-week only" mac & cheese & blood sausage! All half price (except the mac), including the cocktails, opening until 7pm daily. We will be ENVIOUS of your brunch! (Unfortunately Michael still has to cater that party.)

      Glad to hear you had a great time Skip.

      July 7, 2013

  • Kelly T.

    I will check with Dan to see if we can expand the Rez. It is actually only 12 on Open Table, but I added 2, for 14 and Dan is the 15th, but he is cooking! I'll update later!

    July 7, 2013

    • Skip K.

      We had a huge OpenTable res at Border Grill for Sunday brunch recently. 12 was the OpenTable limit, but we called and up'd it to 17, and we still got the points. YAY!

      July 7, 2013

    • Daniel L.

      How many do you want to up it to?

      July 7, 2013

  • GG

    Can I pay you at door?

    June 25, 2013

    • Kelly T.

      No, it isn't a payment to attend. It is a deposit to make sure we don't get no shows. You get it back upon arrival. Hope to see you there!

    Wish we could come...sounds great, but we have company.

    Jumpin the gun there, Kelly. For the last two years, Comme Ça does a special all you can eat BBQ menu on Bastille Day. We're currently working on this year's menu. Last year we had a grill out on the patio and served beer can chicken. I'll keep you all updated as soon as the menu is available.

    June 2, 2013

    • Kelly T.

      Thanks for the update Dan! Please keep us in the loop on the menu for Bastille Day. I did not know that beer can chicken was French! :-)

      “Peche de Triomphe”

      June 2, 2013

    • Skip K.

      Yes. It's not published. And it's made with French whiskey. In all of my years of imbibing, I had never heard of a French whiskey. And, amusingly, it's maker is named "Bastille"! I happened upon the cocktail by accident (ie I was a guinea pig) when I met the maker, mixologist Lenard Peterson, during a happy hour there. He already has one cocktail on the bar menu, "Howard Hughes", but the Peche de Triomphe is now one of my faves when I go there.
