Fine Romantic Dining at “French 75” in Century City- Just Opened! (10/06)

 

     Looking for a Romantic Steakhouse that offers great Seafood/Drink specials/Nice 
Wine list and incredible atmosphere?  Why not try “French 75” located in the Westfield 
Shopping Center in Century City next to Gelsons market. The owner has a nice niche of 
five French 75 Bistros from Burbank to Orange County as well as some other fine 
restaurants.  As you are walking into the restaurant, it seems like a simple place 
situated in the shopping mall. Well, this is no average place! The beautiful live piano 
music, plush booths with a fine décor of red background lighting behind the bar, red 
lamps and candles makes you feel very special for your fine dining experience.
      Some of the starters consist of fresh Pacific Oysters, Gulf Shrimp, King Crab 
Legs, Dungeness Crab Cake, and my favorite- the spicy Ahi Tuna Tartare with avocado, 
crispy sesame crust and chile sauce. Definitely a must if you can handle the little 
spice. A nice selection of Soups and Salads are next.  The suggestion here is the 
French Onion Soup (how could you pass at this French Restaurant?) and the Heirloom 
Tomatoes salad.  You must give both a try.
      The main course is a tossup between some of their delectable seafood choices such 
as Fresh Halibut which is so moist and comes with vegetables and tasty mashed potatoes; 
Trout Meuniere with hazelnut butter, forest mushrooms and fingerling potatoes; or the 
French Onion Salmon in a black pepper crust, mashed potatoes and sweet onion jus.  Not 
in the food for fish, some of the house specialties include Coq Au Vin Chicken braised 
in red wine and served tableside; Short Ribs also in a red wine sauce and mashed 
potatoes; Roast Rack of Lamb; Two Way Duck breast with sun dried cherry sauce; Beef 
Stroganoff with buttered noodles; Chicken & Mushroom or Spinach, Artichoke & Mushroom 
Crepes.  The American Steaks include Porterhouse, NY, Rib Chop or the Filet all seared 
on blue steel pans and all are prime, corn fed/hand selected Midwestern Beef!  Choose 
a side of double baked potato or other styles and a variety of veggies to accompany 
your entree.  
Enjoy the Chocolate or Banana Crepes or Apple Tart along with a special after dinner 
drink or specialty coffee to finish off your great meal!  This a great place for a 
date or to impress someone with a beautiful ambiance and fine food. Live music most 
nights. More info on this new establishment or the other venues at
