THE CAESAR SALAD Our Caesar salad has a sacred lineage. The original recipe from Caesar Cardino's restaurant in Tijuana travelled to Arnaud's in the twenties. Sean was trained in its preparation at Arnaud's before opening the Bistro.


For a Mick, like Sean, the sacrilege of changing our Caesar is too dauting. But for a few bucks ($5) and a risk to your mortal soul you are free to meddle: Canajunized - with maple bacon. Because Sean's Canadian relatives think Caesar salad has little bits of bacon in it. No idea why.Caesar after Cleopatra - 'Blue' with Iowa Maytag blue cheese.Black and Blue - all of the above.Extra Fish - with those cute little, sweet, white anchovies on the side.
