Winter Feast February 25th

Photos from this event can be seen here.

I'm very happy to announce that Bistro Escondido will be serving a very special, celebratory winter dinner on Saturday, February 25th in Joshua Tree.

The evening will start with a cocktail, the Northwood II, a delicious aperatif which is comprised of Dark rum, Brandy, Apple cider and Maple syrup served alongside a Galette of Fig, Pancetta and Gorgonzola.

First course will be a Composed Salad of shaved Brussels sprouts, Radicchio, Cranberries and Blood orange.

Next, the main course will include Prosciutto wrapped Pork Loin stuffed with Apples, Kale and Chestnuts served with Wild Mushroom Ravioli with herbed brown butter.

And finally, Espresso Creme Brulée with Almond and Cacao Nib Biscotti for desert.

Vegetarians can opt for an entrée serving of ravioli served with the kale, apple and chestnut stuffing, cooked separately from the meat, of course. A special non-alcoholic cocktail will also be available.

Vegetarian and non-alcoholic meals are $35 and the full dinner is $40.
Bring your own wine or try our wine pairings for only $5 per glass.

This dinner will take place at boxoHOUSE, where an installation by Gosia Wlodarczak is currently on display. Pre-payment is not required but reservations are. Directions will be provided when your reservation is confirmed. Please RSVP to with your choice of pork or vegetarian dinner.

We look forward to seeing you!
