Bardot is now offering a Monday night four-course chef tasting menu. Chef Rhett Vellner’s menu is $45 per person and will change every week. The menu will featureseasonal inspirations and a twist on favorites from the regular offerings.
Vellner says, “I look forward to experimenting with new flavors and ingredients, as well as bringing modern updates to classic French dishes.”
Craig LaBan heads to Northern Liberties to take in the cooking of Rhett Vellner atBardot, the French bar/restaurant from the Pub on Passyunk East’s Dennis Hewlett.
Vellner shows real delicacy in his take on the common beet, salt-roasted in coriander-fennel spice and paired with creamy onion soubise, goat cheese, and the crumbles of a walnut-rye bread streusel (de rigueur these days, as faux “soil”). A crisp fillet of arctic char was also spot-on, with an earthy duo of parsnips (pureed and creamy with ginger; crisped into ribbons) and the surprising fusion spark of funky kimchi.
