Beginning today, Coohills, the French-inspired eatery at 1400 Wewatta, will be doing a monthly prix fixe menu called “Taste of France” that will focus on a new region every month.
Each week will be a different three-course menu for $35 per person, not including tax and tip. For March, the focus is on Lyon.
Coohills menu may be French-influenced, but it’s Colorado grown. The restaurant, co-owned by spouses Tom and Diane Coohill, partners with local and regional farmers for fresh produce, fish, poultry and meats. All of the breads and desserts are made in-house from scratch.
Here’s the March menu lineup:
March 3-8: Saucisson “en croute” – warm lentil salad; Chicken “Coq au Vin” – pommes puree, lardon, mushrooms, onion; Coussion de Lyon – chocolate ganache, marzipan.
March 10-15: Gratinne Lyonnaise - Lyon-style onion soup; Loup de Mer Quenelle - Mediterranean sea bass, Champagne sauce; Tart de Grand-Mere – caramelized apple tart, vanilla ice cream.
March 17-22: Lyonnaise Salad – crisp farm egg, bacon, garlic, Dijon vinaigrette; Entrecote au Vin Blanc - strip steak, Boulanger potatoes, white wine, shallot and tomato; Negus Cake - chocolate cake, whipped cream, chocolate sauce.
March 24-29: Asperges Grillee Soubise - grilled asparagus, puree of braised onions; Légumes Gateau – crisp vegetable cake, spring mushrooms, peas, sunchoke, truffle vinaigrette; Marjolaine “Fernand Point” - chocolate, hazelnuts, cream.
