A little piece of France in Florida.
In Vero Beach for just a few days at the end of our US visit, we discovered this little gem on google, as one does. Feeling in the mood for a little taste of France after weeks of - very tasty, but rich= american fare, we decide to book Bistro Fourchette for dinner. We discovered the restaurant tucked away in a little courtyard , very charmingly decorated as a little square in Europe, with a lovely fountain greeting us. Upon entry of the restaurant we were greeted by a cheerful hostess, and transferred to France , soft ‘ French chanson’, and tasteful table setting . The menu and specials were expertly explained by our waitress dressed totally French’s style, with a baret to top it off. And then,the food arrived. Even with expectations that were high by now, the chef Stephane delivered an exquisite experience. We opted for soups to start; the gazpacho and the pea&aspargus , both delicious, followed by mains of Filet Mignon ( steak) and French fries, and a soft shell crab ( a special) , again both cooked to perfection. The accompanying wines finished off the taste experience, ..before two beautiful desserts; the souffle Grand Marnier & chocolate mousse. We were only passing through Vero beach on this occasion, but if we would live here’s this would be one of our feed addresses. Do try it!
