Lobstercargots Lush chunks of Florida spiny lobster (instead of the chewy little slugs). Slow cooked in a crock with herbed spinach and seasoned garlic butter. A Bistro original. Often imitated.
The Caesar Salad Our Caesar salad has a sacred lineage. The original recipe from Caesar Cardini's restaurant in Tijuana travelled to Arnaud's in the twenties. Sean was trained in its prepartion at Arnaud's before opening the Bistro. For a Mick, like Sean, the sacrilege of changing our Caesar is too daunting. But for a few bucks ($5) and a risk to your mortal soul you are free to meddle.
Canajunized - with Bistro maple glazed bacon. Because Sean's Canadian relatives think Caesar salad has little bits on bacon in it. No idea why.

Bacon n' Blue - All of the above. Caesar transformed.

American Ranchlands' Rach of Domestic Lamb Simply the worlds best, fresh, domestic lamb, from Colorado. Seasoned, pan-seared and oven roasted. Finished with a port-rosemary demi-glace.

Emeril's favorite.
