Ponty Bistro has that certain je ne sais quoi, the perfect blend of French, spicy African and Mediterranean flavors that makes for a midday meal that perks up a weekday slump or livens up a weekend brunch.French cuisine always seems to find that happy balance between rich and fulfilling and distinctly light – you now, that certain je ne sais quoi. At Ponty Bistro they’re blending the best of France with spicy African and Mediterranean flavors for a midday meal that perks up a weekday slump or livens up a weekend brunch.
Two of our favorite t words can be had here: terrines and tagines. The Terrine de Foie Gras is an elegant slice of the creamy French dish along with toasted baguette and a port wine reduction. The Le Poulet Tagine is a zesty mix of African spices with diced baby vegetables and chicken, served nestled up in a bed of couscous.
For a luxurious lunch, the Moules Africana and the Le Poulet a la Française are our go-to favorites. The Moules Africana arrive fresh and flavorful in a coating of aromatic African spices. And the Le Poulet a la Française offers all the comfort of a home-cooked meal (made with the sophisticated flair of an expert). The chicken breast is sautéed in a white wine sauce to tender perfection, then plated with savory mashed potatoes, haricot vert (that’s French for green beans), and carrots. Their weekend brunch menu also offers a taste of the unique palate here at Ponty. The Duck Confit Omelet is a downright succulent breakfast with onions, red pepper and Swiss cheese. And the Lobster Benedict is a decadent take on the old brunch standby. Made with fresh meat from the tasty crustacean and served with a side of soft-but-crispy home fries – can we just eat this on the weekdays, too?
