RHYTHM OF FRENCH CUISINE
Classic & Contemporary - French Comfort Food
Arrives in St. Augustine
Jean-Stephane Poinard has come to America.
Bistro de Leon is within steps from the
Bridge of Lions on Cathedral Place in St. Augustine,
Florida. "This is a restaurant that fits into its
neighborhood - Bistro de Quartier. It's a small cozy
café in a cozy town, like at home in Lyon". French
home cuisine "la cuisine de meres" is what propelled
Poinard to the top of the elitist gastronomic scene
since 1998. Proud of being a 5th generation chef and
owning Lyon's Hotel Restaurant de Paris (in the
family since 1962) brought this splendid
restaurateur with a pedigree into the limelight -
delighting celebrities with his exuberant passion
and pleasure in cooking. As a member of the
exclusive Les Toques Blanches Lyonnaises, Poinard is
one of the honored chefs invited into the rare
fraternity of 100 members. The new Bistro de Leon
begins early, authentic French breakfast served when
St. Augustine wakens. His kitchen is alive with the
surprises of each day's bounty through lunch and
into dinner. Together, Jean-Stephane and Valerie
Poinard invite their guests to 'Enjoy the Bistro as
if it were 'Beaujolais Nouveau' every day of the
year and live the moment with us".

Datil B Good spicy datil sauces are
fragrant, piquant and perfect for every palate from
mild to scalding hot! Her recipes are adopted from
the authentic legacy of St. Augustine's Minorcan
families, dating to the late 1700's. The little
green and yellow peppers are grown locally and their
Spanish inheritance is unmistakable. Their sweet
heat is clearly identifiable...men go for the heat
and women go for the sweet! Datil B Good has a
pedigree, since Stoppelbein grows her datils,
creates the sauces from scratch and adds that
special dash of love from her farm in St. Augustine.
