Leatherby’s Café Rouge – Jersey Boys Menu
We dined as a guest of Leatherby’s
If you are planning on seeing the Jersey Boys at The Segerstrom Center for the Arts, then I recommend having the complete Jersey Boys night out.
Your night starts off with a unique dining experience at Leatherby’s Café Rouge. Leatherby’s Café Rouge is offering a three course prix fixe Jersey Boys menu from June 24-July 13 which includes Tomato watermelon gazpacho, Sherry braised beef short rib and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Trio to name a few.
My husband and I went before the show and wanted to share our mouth-watering night. For the first course, my husband ordered the Summer: a tomato watermelon gazpacho. Grilled watermelon, Dungeness crab, cucumber gelee and crème fraiche espuma make this summer soup a masterpiece paired with a fabulous pinot. It was light and refreshing, a perfect start to a beautiful meal.
I went with the Can’t take my eyes off you: Hamachi, yuzu soy gelee, mango, jalapeno, wasabi avocado mouse, romaine, radish, cucumber and herbs make up is gorgeous starter. It truly was too pretty to eat. Like the Summer, the Can’t take my eyes off you was refreshing but it had an Asian kick to it.
Between courses, we had their Tomato salad which was a perfect blend of tomatoes, goat cheese, and mint, drizzled with sweet onion vinaigrette.
For the main course my husband chose the Sherry: House made fettuccine, Sherry braised beef short rib, pea tendrils, English peas, forest mushroom and pecorino paired with a director’s cut Cabernet. The ribs were cooked perfectly, melting in your mouth.
I chose the Ces Soirees-la: Scotish Salmon, almond potato puree, cauliflower, dates, capers, salmon caviar, Marcona almond, Greek yogurt with cumin. All of these ingredients plated as if it were a piece of art. Having your food showcased in such a beautiful manner takes the enjoyment of the dish to another level. Not only was the salmon delicious, the layers of flavors made you appreciate the skill of the chef’s pallet.
For dessert we both had the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame trio: root beer float/banana royale/strawberry shortcake. There is nothing more fun than bite sized treats, you can have all three and not feel guilty or stuffed.
The root beer float took us back to our childhood, celebrating the end of school with family on a hot summer day. The banana royal was similar to a mini banana split without the mess and tummy ache. Last but not least the strawberry shortcake, a petit cake layered with strawberries and crème. It was so delicious not a drop was left behind. Once we were done with our dining experience, we walked a whole minute and were at the box office. Leatherby’s Café Rouge’s location is like no other for theater goers.
It is located directly across from the The Segerstrom Center for the Arts, inside the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. This serene, light-infused setting is a gem. The whimsical culinary artistry is part of the cultural experience. Perfect for pre-theater dining or a special night out, you need to pay a visit to Leatherby’s Café Rouge’s!
