Elegant dining at a discount price

Posted: Updated:

RANCHO SANTA FE, Calif. (CBS 8) - The rarified air of the Ranch seems an unlikely spot to search for some bargain bites, but these days you find some real deals on gourmet meals.

"Even Mille Fleurs, which I've named best restaurant in the county for some years and many of San Diego magazine's readers have named best restaurant for many years, even they are having a bargain now. You can go on bistro night and get a $40 menu that includes three courses. These are a little bit different from the standing menu, but it's delicious food. It's cooked by chef Martin Vossil and you don't really get better than him," San Diego magazine food critic David Nelson said.

"Of course you get the experience of dining at Mille Fleurs with the service that remains the best in the county. One of the nicest things about this specially priced menu is that you get three courses, but with each course you get three choices.

"Starters recently have included suckling pig and aspic. There's also a salad of tender calamari and melting Chino's Farm tomatoes.

"Entrees might be things such as a delicate homemade ravioli or a New York steak cut from Durham Ranch bison and served with a green peppercorn sauce or very light seafood dumplings," Nelson said.

A choice of desserts is included in your three-course prix-fixe to top off a perfect evening out.

"Mille Fleurs remains San Diego's most elegant restaurant," Nelson said.

And for now, Mille Fleurs' elegance just may be affordable.
