All the olive oils we use at Le Pichet and Café Presse are supplied by our friends at Seattle based Villa Jerada. Mehdi Boujrada, the brains behind Villa Jerada, imports organic olive oils from Morocco that happen to be produced by the Aquallal family, who are neighbors of Mahdi’s family there. Sold under the Atlas Olive Oils label, these oils are preferred by some of the top chefs in France, Morocco and the U.S. We love their Huile d’Olive Extra Verge Bio for everyday use and the very special “Les Terroires de Marrakech” Extra Virgin Olive Oil for finishing dishes. This last oil, which is made exclusively from picholine olives, is featured in the nicoise-style Socca dish on Le Pichet’s current menu.
Salad of beefsteak and heirloom tomatoes, red onion, capers, parsley, roasted garlic vinaigrette and a hard cooked egg.
The summer menu for 2017 at Cafe Presse was rolled out today by chef de cuisine James O’Hern. Here are some photos from the traditional all-staff tasting to get you in the summer mood! Check out our menu full menu here.
Duck rillettes served wtih red wine poached figs, grain mustard and cornichons
When the thermometer is topping 90 degrees, its way to hot to cook! Instead of turning on the oven,why not let us do the cooking? Most of the items on our menu are available to take home including our famous roasted to your order Poulet Roti.
Give us a call and we will have your bird ready when you arrive. Choose with frites or plain, maybe even add a salad and a nice bottle of rosé to round out your meal.
Or even better, grab a table and enjoy our air conditioning!
Forecast calls for a hot one out there! But both Cafe Presse and Le Pichet have air conditioning so there is 100% chance of cool and comfortable inside at either place.
Join us for something cool to drink and some cool breezes.
