If you are looking for some French cuisine in the Fort Worth area, Le Cep is the place to be. French food is hard to find in the area, so Le Cep is a breath of fresh air. It won’t take you away from your favorite BBQ places, but it will offer something different and new that you may just love.
The chef at Le Cep, Sandra, trained in France, so she is able to prepare authentic food that makes you feel like you just stepped foot into Paris. The best part is, you don’t have to look at a menu full of items you have never heard of and choose something to eat. She offers what she calls a discovery or tasting menu. You simply have to choose between eight (discovery) and four (tasting) courses.
Each course has two different choices, so you do have options, but you aren’t overwhelmed with food you don’t recognize. Don’t worry about eating the same thing each time you visit Le Cep because the menu is different each month. If you want, you can add a course of cheese with complementary wines to enjoy.
The cheese course, if chosen, comes out after the entrée and has at least a dozen different cheeses to choose from. You will pick three and have the choice of enjoying them with crackers and fruit preserves if you don’t want to eat the cheese by itself. You will end the night with a delicious dessert.
Le Cep doesn’t allow you to substitute, but all of the ingredients are clearly listed on the menu, so you know what you are choosing even though you don’t know how it is prepared until it comes to your table. So sit back and enjoy a little French cuisine at Le Cep, don’t try to change it- just eat.
