Lou Lou Bistro Launches New Happy Hour
Its "Tchin-Tchin Happy Hour" ("Tchin-Tchin" is what the French say when their glasses make that familiar first 'clink') features $5 vino, or a fancy flight of 4 varietals ($9) that will be swapped out regularly to keep things interesting. You'll get two reds and two whites to try out -- a Chenin Blanc or Sauvignon Blanc, a Chardonnay, a Pinot Noir and a Merlot or Merlot blend (we were given a lovely, plummy Medoc).
In addition, Executive Chef Nuno Grullón has changed up the menu to include new dishes with more Frenchified wow-factor: herb crusted rack of lamb en croute ($29), a duck confit with du puy lentil salad ($14) and prawns flambéed in pastis ($24). The most important kitchen shift is that all pâtés are now made on the premises. Chef Grullón has a formidable way with pâté.
