Chef Andre Rochat has forged a culinary legacy in the annals of Las Vegas restaurant history spanning over 30 years beginning his iconic namesake Downtown venue, to the stunning Alize at the Palms and his recently closed Andres at the Monte Carlo hotel. Chef Andre has now journeyed back to his original roots by going back full circle in engaging the locals at his newest namesake, Andres Bistro &Bar located in the former home of DW bistro southwest area of Las Vegas.
Andre’s Bistro & Bar combines the classic French Bistro and American tavern scene and is Chef’s attempt to have everyone enjoy his cuisine in a more affordable and relaxed neighborhood setting. “We want our patrons to eat, drink and talk to each other, not just eat and rush out. In Europe, we take time to socialize, spending a few hours with friends and family, and we want people to do that here,” explained Chef Andre. Chef Andre is continuing to serve superb cuisine in the suburbs and at age 73 he shows no signs of slowing his pace or cutting corners with everything being made in house and sourced as fresh and local as possible.
Open for lunch, dinner and brunch, Andre’s Bistro & Bar is the perfect place to meet with friends, family and associates. Andre’s intention was in creating a place where that similar “cheers” kind of feeling overtakes you from the moment you in walk into the front door. With plenty of open seating and Andre’s hallmark roosters gracing the wall décor along with whimsical drawings rendered by Chef’s niece, Isabelle Michaud, a convivial and relaxed atmosphere has been achieved with flair and thoughtfulness. The Happy Hour menu is designed to put a grin on the face of any budget conscious diner with menu items such as the perfectly cooked lamb burger accented with tangy zatziki and feta and a generous portion of frites for a mere $7, or the Andre’s signature beef burger with Swiss cheese, red onion marmalade and truffle mayo for the same price point.
Similarity, the main menu showcases the tried and true Andre French classic dishes such as the lovely Golden Trout Almandine with green beans and buerre noisette, or the Moules Frites with a generous helping of PEI mussels surrounded by tomato concasse, garlic and parsley accompanied by a side of seasoned French fries; another option is the duck fat fries for a deeper crunchy textured frites .The seared fois gras , another true French classic dish, intermingles rich duck liver with apple and almond crumble, crème anglaise, and pork reduction. Desserts are always a pleasurable experience when it comes to Andre’s culinary magic, as highlighted in decadent Apple Tartin or the memorable grand mariner soufflé.
The wine list, hand crafted cocktails and beer menu offer generous and ample offerings for everyone in your dining party. With over thirty years of honing his Las Vegas hospitality and culinary craft, we applaud Chef Andre Rochat for continuing his legacy as a neighborhood restaurant and as Bastian of stellar service and impeccable food.
