Restaurant Review // Le Parc Bistro

The food culture in this little (or not so little) town is growing by leaps and bounds every year. I’ve worked in the service industry here, North Carolina and abroad on and off for the past 10+ years. And lets face it I’ve been a patron of restaurants of all ends of the spectrum since I was old enough to be wedged in a highchair. So I think it’s fair to say I know a thing or two when it comes to restaurants…in general. Who knows, one of these days I may grow a pair (pardon the image) and actually open my own brainchild restaurant…pipe dreams people.

A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of checking out one of the newest spots in town. Le Parc Bistro is a French inspired bistro located in downtown Frederick, MD. Below you can see how it scored on the infamous rubric, but first here’s a couple of nuggets to chew on that I noticed right away & a few photos to wet your appetite.

  • the ambiance instantly feels French, and if you’ve been to France you know exactly what I mean. it’s no frills or fuse; just clean, welcoming, comfortable and filled with mouth-watering aromas.
  • if you’re indecisive you may be in trouble. when perusing the menu it’s hard to decide on what to order, because it all sounds good. this is a good thing.
  • two words : duck poutine. #must
  • the bathroom feels like Julia Child decorated it herself.
  • I kinda wish the wait staff had arrogant French accents. what, a girl can dream.

    Recently stopped in for a late dinner, and…… Duck Poutine FTW.

    Cocktails were pricy, but well-made and well-thought.

    Kept it classic for the main, as it was the first visit, and the Croque Monsieur was indeed delightful. A little too heavy with the extra heavy mornay sauce, (as if béchamel isn’t enough?!), but altogether a fine execution of the classic sammy (with plenty leftover for breakfast the next AM).

    Next trip: sweetbreads + plum pork or whatever else may strike interest, as the menu continually created excitement and allure.

    Bienvenue le Parc!
