The “coastal garden” cuisine at Chef Pascal Olhats’ Café Jardin at Corona del Mar’s Sherman Gardens & Library marries vibrantly fresh California produce with a French pedigree. The restaurant is located in full view of the central flower gardens. Dining takes place outdoors for the most part, moving indoors in case of inclement weather – a rarity in Orange County.
Sunday Brunch at Café Jardin has just resumed. Think housemade Pate’ and Indian-Spiced Braised Lamb Osso Bucco.
Chef Pascal also is the resident chef at Manassero Farms in Irvine and hosts “The French Chef and The Farmer’s Wife” series there.
We entice Chef Pascal out of harvesting in his herb garden for an update.
