About Le Bistro -- Le Bistro...a French place to eat in Walnut Creek
The concept of Le Bistro is based on fresh, organic and local ingredients prepared "a la minute". Chef Jean-Paul Peluffo was born in a pot and raised in the kitchen. Like his father and his grandfather before him, they are chef-owners. Jean-Paul's career started at age of five making pastry along side his father. His career has taken him from his native Nice, France, to the Ivory Coast, Las Hadas, Mexico, as the Corp. Executive Chef for Celebrity Cruise Line, the prestigious honor as Executive Chef at the G8 Summit in Genoa, Italy (designing and executing the meals for all the Heads of State attending), to downtown Walnut Creek, CA. The food, the music, the atmosphere and the mood of the Chef are all authentic ... true French.
Under the calm of French melodies playing in the background, owner Kathleen Peluffo warmly greets visitors as her husband Chef Jean-Paul crafts fresh and seasonal fare from Nice. Located at 1606 North Main Street, Walnut Creek, CA 94596 since 2002, Le Bistro offers traditional Southern French cuisine. Open lunch and dinner Monday - Saturday (lunch: 11:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., dinner: 5:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.).
