If you have been in Pacific Beach you will have likely driven by The French Gourmet restaurant on Turquoise Street. Having been in business since 1979 they are successful and experienced in catering corporate events, holiday parties, fundraisers, and special occasions. Gourmet is the perfect word to describe the elegant wedding cakes, fresh pastries, pomegranate salad, Lollipop lamb chop, New York steak, Smoked Salmon, Chicken Pot Pie, and other delicious food.

Their fine dining restaurant is quaint and cozy. Locals and tourists come to enjoy the cocktails and wine as well as the amazing entrees. You will be welcomed with warm baguette bread and soft butter. The three-course fixed-price dinner is worth it at $29.95. One of the options is house salad, confit duck, and Millenium chocolate cake. The servers are polite, attentive, helpful, and friendly.

I visited the bakery while waiting for the oil in my car to be changed. The hand-crafted espresso drink was very good as well as the breakfast burrito. All the pastries and treats in the case looked delicious, especially the chocolate croissants. For directions, catering, and to view the menu please visit their website at www.thefrenchgourmet.com.
