A delectable taste of the best French cuisine you can enjoy on the island is just what patrons will experience at Fromage Gourmet Market and Bistro. After a successful 2013 - its first time participating in the Gleaner-sponsored Restaurant Week - Fromage is back and has now expanded its offerings to include a dinner menu.

"We did lunch last year and we loved the reception. We recently started offering dinner specialities, so we decided that this year, we will be solely focused on offering a dinner menu," manager Lorian Sinclair told Food.

The dinner menu will include crab cakes and bacon-wrapped prawns, which have been a huge hit in recent times.

Chef Homel Simpson pointed out that the use of local products and fresh produce are significant contributors to the taste and flavour that patrons can look forward to this year.

"We offer quality food and quality service at a reasonable price. The layout of the restaurant is the perfect setting for intimate dining for two or for groups of family, co-workers or friends," Sinclair stated.

The French-inspired food is exceptional. From the Caribbean Passion pork special and the pomegranate-glazed salmon to the steak au poivre, the offerings are sure to entice and captivate the taste buds of patrons. For lighter appetites, the calamari fritti and smoked marlin stack appetisers are sure to delight.

For dessert, patrons can look forward to the creme caramel, caramel crumble and bread pudding.

"The food is exceptional, and patrons are definitely in for a treat," Sinclair stated confidently.
