Recently re-visited Pascal’s Bistro in PTC with friends. It remains one of the better restaurant in this are. The service is always impeccable and the food is honest and very elegant. I am a fan of Chef Pascal’s steak au poivre as well as his beet salad with goat cheese. His wine list is good value and the ambiance is true to a french bistro with tablecloth candles etc.
A great place for an anniversary and special occasion. He does feature nightly prix fixe dinner at $19.99 which is well worth it.
Open for lunch as well and a great patio.

Pippin at The Legacy
This hip, tounge-in-cheek, fairy tale captivated Broadway audiences
and continues to appeal to the young at heart everywhere. The energetic
pop-influenced score by three-time Oscar-wining composer/lyricist Stephen
Schwartz (“Godspell,” “Wicked,” and the animated films “Pocahontas,” and “The
Prince of Egypt”) bursts with one showstoping number after another, from
soaring ballards to infectious dance numbers. Rated PG
