In a quaint French bistro setting, Head Chef Anthony Ferré and Alain Keller whip up an extensive menu stocked with authentic French crêpes and Swiss fondue along with traditional cuisine such as the flammenkuchen, an oven-toasted tart topped with sour cream, bacon, onion and Swiss cheese ($9.50). Share the imposing La Potence, a vertical metal rack of beef tenderloin flambéed tableside ($25) or the docile Swiss cheese fondue, spiked with white wine and served with French baguette croutons for dipping ($17.50). Pacify sweet teeth buds with a sweet crêpe such as the Grand Marnier crêpe, drizzled with chocolate and bursting with vanilla ice cream and candied orange peel ($5.75), among other dessert options. A tongue-quenching wine selection highlights French, Californian, and some Swiss wines as well as globally sourced beers.
Mike’s Rigatoni Bistro is a hub for authentic Italian and Greek cuisines, including house-made pasta entrees and dishes cooked with ouzo, an anise-flavored apéritif that symbolizes Greek culture. Meat specialties span flavors from opposite sides of the Mediterranean: the Grecian-style myconos chicken lazes alongside sun-dried tomatoes, fresh oregano, and Kretikos wine, and the Italian-style milanese chicken scaloppini sports homemade parmesan-herbed breadcrumbs and veal demi-glace. Pasta entrees include noodles drenched in clam sauce or the lasagna al forno, stratified with meat sauce, ricotta, and house-made sausage to lend the plate more layers than Dante’s famous disco inferno. Comfortable red booths ensconce guests as Old World wreaths and curios recall a rustic country villa.
When hockey player Devin Fremouw donned a jersey with the number 71 on it, he began seeing 71 everywhere he went. It became a sort of obsession for him, enough so that he married his wife Belinda on 7/1 at 7:01 p.m—the exact time, however, was an act of fate, as the ceremony started several minutes late. And so, when the husband-and-wife duo decided to open a bar and grill, they knew they'd incorporate those numbers into the name: 71 American Grille.
The restaurant combines a classic American grill that serves burgers, mac n' cheese, and smokey barbecue with an old-fashioned ice cream parlor and a sports bar, known respectively as Scoop @ 71 and Shots @ 71. All are housed in a single space with an expansive outdoor patio illuminated with globe lights and domesticated fireflies.
