In Queen Village, the culinary team at Bistrot La Minette, 623 S. 6th St., is paying tribute to Nouvelle cuisine this month as executive chef Kenneth Bush and his team are preparing two revolutionary Nouvelle-inspired dishes. The concept will celebrate the genius and mastery of chef Paul Bocuse, who is known as the creative force behind the Nouvelle Cuisine movement.

Poularde Truffée en Vessie, chick- en steamed in Madeira broth, black truffles, morel crème sauce, baby vegetables, rice pilaf ($39) and Soupe aux Truffles Noires, black truffle soup, foie gras and puff pastry ($22) are the two special menu items, which will be available through Feb. 25.

“Chef Bocuse led the revolutionary movement in France where chefs could be creative and invent their own dishes,” chef-owner Peter Woolsey said. “In 2001, I was lucky enough to work under one of his contemporaries and another founder of Nouvelle cuisine, Alain Senderens. He was the visionary who first realized that pairing a glass of wine with a flavorful dish enhances the whole experience of enjoying a meal.”

Guests should call the restaurant, 215–925–8000, ahead of time to request either dish, or leave a note when making a reservation on OpenTable.
