As fine-dining chefs continue to set their sights on puny plates and burger madness, South L.A.-based Bacaro is embracing a more upscale attitude for its second Sunday events. Does this mean the pendulum is starting to lurch right again? Probably not, but Bacaro is taking a page from its founder and former owner, Santos Uy, by ditching its long-held Beefsteak Sundays and offering a low-cost prix fixe of fussier cuisine on September 2, following up with the plan on the second Sunday of each month. Priced at $28, Bacaro is offering a three-course market menu, with two choices in every course, including a difficult decision between fig mac and cheese or a sous-vide egg sandwich with Osetra caviar on brioche to begin, plus pan-seared pork tenderloin, and a bourbon peach tarte tatin for dessert.
Wine pairings for the menu are priced at $15 and if you really miss it, the wine bar will offer you the Beefsteak dinner deal with reservations on any night you please. Check out Bacaro's full fine-dining 2nd Sunday menu below and make reservations at 213-748-7205.
