Date Night never finds ourselves in Peachtree City, but because we are spending the night there on a recent weekend, we decide to go out on a dinner date. Whenever we are out of town, we usually hit up Trip Advisor to see what’s good. Pascal’s Bistro (no relation to Paschal’s downtown) gets good recommendations from those who eat here.
Like the rest of Atlanta, Peachtree City has its share of generic shopping centers, and that’s where Pascal’s is located. They have been here since 1999 so they must be doing something right. When you walk in, you are greeted by a nice person and the bar.
The dining room is larger than it looks from the outside. They can serve a lot of people, and as you can see, it’s pretty crowded.
Peachtree City-ans know where to go to get a strong drink. Evidently, it’s martini time. Along with wine, martinis are the feature of the bar menu. The beer choices are limited, but this is a wine place. We are tired and stick with water.
The menu is extensive and you will not have a problem finding something you like. Chef Pascal was trained in Paris and he knows how to cook. From seafood, to chicken, to lamb to pork, everything that comes from the kitchen looks delicious. Eve goes for the lobster cakes.
They claim these are gluten free, so there’s just a lot of lobster in them. The mashed potatoes are very creamy and the asparagus is as healthy as the potatoes are creamy. She is very pleased with her dinner.
Here’s something you might like, the “create your own signature pasta” part of the menu. You get to pick your pasta (five choices, including gluten-free), meat (three choices), vegetables (12 choices) and sauce (3 choices). Theoretically, you could put all twelve veggies in there if you really wanted to. For $11, it’s quite a bargain. Here are my choices:
I pick the spinach linguini, with a marinara sauce, baby shrimp, broccoli, mushrooms, spinach and olives. It comes out hot and fresh and exactly what I want because I picked it. Your choices will vary, of course, but you can’t go wrong with this dish. It’s like eating at a pasta bar, but Pascal’s does all of the work for you.
Desserts look very tempting. Our fellow diners seem to like the profiteroles and the chocolate creme brûlée looks good too. We are too full to pull the trigger, and we leave very satisfied with our choices tonight.
The bottom line on Pascal’s Bistro: If we lived near Pascal’s, we would probably eat here a lot. It’s 55 miles from our house, which prevents us from becoming “regulars”. If you are a Peachtree City resident and haven’t visited, what are you waiting for? This is excellent cuisine, and it’s so close to you!
