Bing Crosby's Restaurant & Piano Lounge
Written by DSE PR release   

bing_crosby200.jpgBing Crosby €™s Restaurant & Piano Lounge, a Hollywood-inspired setting that captures all the glory and glamour of the 1930s, is set to open in San Diego €™s legendary Fashion Valley Mall on September 3, 2008.


A throwback to a bygone era, the restaurant offers diners more than elegant and upscale dining, but also an experience, paying tribute to €œDer Bingle € one of America €™s greatest crooners. Bing Crosby has a long and rich history in San Diego, it is his velvet-voice you hear at the start of each race day at Del Mar race track.   He helped ensure the race track was built serving as the first president and personally ushering the first attendees through the turnstiles on opening day.

Like Crosby, the restaurant epitomizes cool.   The ambiance is a throwback to the laid-back swing era with refined textures, soft muted tones and the nostalgic sounds of Crosby and other greats of his time. The 270-seat restaurant features a spacious lounge and bar area, a charming patio ideal for dining alfresco and a private dining room for special occasions. Golf course-casual by day, Hollywood-glam by night, the setting captures all the glory of the past, from the sumptuous dΓ©cor to the California Country Club Cuisine.

The California Country Club Cuisine, masterminded by Culinary Director Frank Palmer, is approachable, yet trendy, and based on the solid culinary foundations of technique and tradition. The menus change seasonally, allowing Executive Chef Mike Wilson to take advantage of the freshest produce, fish, shellfish, meat and game dishes. Selections range from Crosby's signature filet mignon with black truffle demi-glace to a delicately seared Ahi Tuna to a delectable lamb prepared three ways. Crosby's also takes pride in a diversified wine list that includes traditional favorites, as well as cutting-edge boutique selections. The lounge boasts a tremendous selection of martini offerings that appeal to all generations. Live entertainment featured seven nights a week provides the perfect backdrop for the dining experience.

Crosby's presents a blend of contemporary and vintage flavors, and a first-class experience that rekindles a glamorous bygone era for anyone who visits.
