“My Fall Menu will roll out on September 17 - I can't wait for you to sample the new dishes I have created for this wonderful time of year. Everyone's already talking about my new Escargot Pizza, and the Corn Profiterolle Maine Lobster dish is an exciting overture that started out as a dessert recipe and ended up as a savory! Also, we are working on a new Duck Breast Sliders plate that should be ready by Christmas.
My biggest surprise will be the introduction of special menus two days each month that will replace the regular menu on those days. I invite you to follow me on Facebook - or you can sign up elsewhere on this web site to receive email updates - to see when each month I will be preparing these amazing menus.
It is an exciting time here at Bistro LQ, and I am thrilled that you are planning to share these great times with us! I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for your support and enthusiasm.

“The one area where we are totally committed and where we never compromise is using really great ingredients that are as fresh as possible,” says Gale. “We buy some of our produce from the farmers’ market and try to pick up organic produce whenever it’s appropriate. We also are always looking for purveyors that carry great quality and unusual product.”
