    Bit to Do

    Ghyslain Red Velvet Pancake
    Print this page

    If you have not visited the adorable, palatable French bistro known as Ghyslain, you're missing out on some heartwarming foodie delight. Let me catch you up: fresh salads, simmering teas and varieties in cuisine from Chicken Curry Naan to Italian Baguette sandwiches. You’ll feel as if you're sitting in a cozy café in Europe, sipping on white ambrosia tea with a slight swirl of cream, savoring life at its finest.

    People always press the importance of saving the best for last. In my opinion, it would be near blasphemy to go to Ghyslain without marveling at and promptly devouring at least one of the dazzling French pastries. Brace yourself for some dessert withdrawals. It’s okay; we’ve all been there. A saccharine daydream concoction like the Sacher cake (featured to the right): the decadence of fresh raspberry purée and dark chocolate mousse layered on raspberry-infused chocolate genoise, then glazed with natural red mirror is a reverie brought to life.

    On top of all these reasons that you should already be part of Ghyslain’s loyal following of content restaurant hoppers, summer lovin’ just got even more luscious. And weekdays just got a little more exciting. No more pining for the weekend. During July and August, Ghyslain is offering summer special invitations to visit both casual-meets-upscale bistro locales in NuLu and Westport Village.

    There will be options for kids for those charismatic family outings, brunch (only quite possibly the best meal of the day), girls’ nights out (can you say mimosas?) and more. And on a gorgeous summer day or night, why not take advantage of some lovely patio seating?

    Ghyslain Coffee Cardamom Chocolate Gelato

    Chef Ghyslain created his gelato to honor the richness of childhood nostalgia. It's amazing how one bite of a masterfully created recipe can hearken back joyful memories, vivid as the present. Chef Ghyslain has said, “One of my favorite chocolates was a cardamom and chocolate combination that I would eat with French roast coffee. Coffee Cardamom Chocolate Chip Gelato. The flavors would move like a dancer across the tongue. Cardamom first, strong and exotic like the streets of India, tempered just slightly by the milky smoothness of gelato. Coffee and chocolate skipping hand-in-hand just after it, melting for the perfect finish.

    For those afflicted with an exquisite rush of wanderlust, it is possible to virtually travel the world one bite at a time. Venture outside your comfort zone and explore the endless possibilities: gelato that tastes like an Indian summer, a Crepe Fermiere with perfectly melted gruyere cheese, or laughter over sparkling mimosas and French croissants among the people who feel like “home.” Ghyslain is waiting with open doors to help you experience the wonders of the world.
