Enjoy a Taste of France in the Heart of the Valley at Cafe Bizou
From rich Maine lobster elegantly served over homemade linguini to melt-in-your-mouth crème brulee, Café Bizou marries French and California cuisine dans le coeur of the valley. French owner Philippe Gris has been running his popular Sherman Oaks restaurant for more than 20 years, and the newer Agoura Hills location, opened in June 2017, continues the appeal to discerning guests seeking tasty and affordable French-inspired cuisine.
The perfect setting for business meetings, intimate tête-à-têtes, birthday celebrations, rehearsal dinners, and more, Café Bizou offers a taste of France in a delightful setting. Owner Gris and Manager Benoit Lesure strive to make diners feel like family. The cozy ambiance provides the intimate atmosphere of a charming French bistro, while the friendly staff and extra space for private gatherings offer just the right touch of American largesse.
Traditional Francophile favorites range from classic sweetbreads, lobster bisque and French onion soup to moules frites swimming in a sea of white wine, escargots persillade dancing in garlic butter, roasted duck breast, and double truffle pommes frites. Other popular items include tender rack of lamb; hearty bouillabaise, a seafood stew that originated in the port city of Marseille, France; and meaty roasted monkfish. Also popular are their $2 romaine salad with Dijon honey mustard dressing, $3 Caesar salad, and $2 soup of the day served with any entrée. Special holiday, lunch, and dinner party menus make it easy to enjoy the food and ambiance of Paris without paying the lofty price of a plane ticket or typical French restaurant.
Whether you’re hoping to wake up your weekend with brunch specialties ranging from decadent eggs benedict to brulee French toast or a hearty lunch of beef stroganoff or spicy chicken fettucine, you’ll find plenty of reasons to shout, “Vive la France!” Perhaps you and your special someone are planning a night on the town. Look no further than Café Bizou. Their shrimp and lobster risotto on a bed of golden saffron risotto topped with a fricassee of shrimp and fresh Maine lobster will make any seafood lover smile. A tasty assortment of plats du jours (plates of the day) is also available every night from Tuesday through Sunday. If you’re fortunate enough to be visiting on a Saturday night, try their delicately prepared Chilean sea bass.
