Bistro Voltaire Introduces Pre-Theatre Prix Fixe Menu CHICAGO, January 8, 2013 – French cuisine eatery Bistro Voltaire (226 W. Chicago Ave. Chicago IL; (312) 265-0911) is extending its Monday night Prix Fixe menu to accommodate the theatre crowd. From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, guests can experience the prix fixe 3-course menu specially curated by Chef Farid Oualidi for $29. The previous special continues Monday nights 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. The Pre-Theatre meal begins with a choice between a variety of France’s most traditional and beloved dishes. The first course offers the Soupe a L’oignon Gratinee a classic French onion soup and the Vols Au Vent Aux Champignons a baked puff pastry with a wild mushroom ragout. The Escargot de Bourgogne features braised escargots with a garlic herb butter and puff pastry. Lastly, the Oeuf en Cocotte represents a shirred egg atop sautéed mushrooms, crème fraiche and a porcini truffle mousse. The second course boasts an assortment of delectably savory entrée items. The Boeuf Bourguignon is a rich dish of braised short ribs in a red wine burgundy sauce with pearl onions, carrots, fingerling potatoes and bacon. Grilled salmon is the star when it is paired with couscous, asparagus, tomatoes and a lemon butter sauce for the Pave de Saumon Grille. The Noisettes de Porc is a mix between sweet and savory with its roasted pork medallions, caramelized apples, haricots verts (green beans), and sauce normande. As a vegetarian option the Gnocchi a la Parisienne is available as a French twist on gnocchi complimented by sautéed vegetables and beurre noisette. To finish off this French culinary expedition, Chef Oualidi prepares a choice between Gateau au Chocolat, a warm chocolate cake with espresso ice cream, Crème Brûlée and espresso and vanilla Gelato ice cream.
