Bijoux Restaurant

Being foodies, we love finding great restaurants.  And Dan being born 4 days before Valentine’s Day means that we get a chance to try fancy/romantic/new restaurants on his birthday without any hassle about getting a reservation or fighting the Valentine’s crowds.  This year, we decided to try Bijoux, “a contemporary French” restaurant.  Bijoux offers a five course prix fixe menu, or you can just order however many courses you’d like – a la carte style.  They also have a chef’s tasting menu, but we passed on it this time, since we just had the tasting experience last month at Fuego.  Bijoux is a wonderful restaurant — perfect for celebrating a birthday, Valentine’s Day or any other special occasion.  The ambiance was romantic and luxurious, the service was excellent, and the food was outstanding.   

Our server explained that most people dining at Bijoux who choose the prix fixe usually pick 2 appetizer courses, 1 entree, 1 cheese course and 1 dessert.  We found that the serving sizes worked really well for this combination, since the appetizers are small and the entrees are larger (although still not as large as a regular-sized portion at most restaurants).  In addition, there is a wide variety of appetizer choices on the menu — so many that I probably could have picked 3 and skipped the cheese course.
