Short Rib Bourguignon - Recipe from Parc Bistro-Brasserie

— DAVID NELSON

Parc Bistro-Brasserie Voted BEST Modern French Restaurant in San Diego!

People come to this elegant Bankers Hill establishment for its mussels, escargots du Bourgogne, short rib Bourguignon, and especially the steak frites. Chef Benjamin Navarro specializes in modern French; come September, he’ll launch a new menu but keep the classics we love. Parc is also known for its wine list. Owner and San Diego restaurant veteran Garo Minassian hosts monthly five-course wine dinners that bring in vintners like Northern Italy’s Batasiolo for the Barolo lovers. The next one is Frank Family Vineyards, September 19.
