“Passport to Maine”: Three OC Restaurants Participate in Lobster Challenge

30

French 75 (Laguna Beach), Savannah Chop House (Dana Point), and
Brasserie Pascal (Fashion Island, Newport Beach) invite OC restaurant goers to participate
in their “Passport to Maine” promotion at each restaurant and enjoy each of their “Lobster
Challenge” dishes from now until February 28 priced at just $25.95 per dish.

Pick up your passport at any of the battling restaurants which are now serving fresh live Maine
lobster flown in daily for specially prepared menus by Master Chef Pascal Olhats’s top chefs.
Olhats, as management consultant for French 75, Brasserie Pascal and Savannah Chop House,
encourages, “They are all fantastic! I can’t decide!”

Once patrons complete their passport excursion, they can vote for their favorite dish: “Lobster
Duo” prepared by French 75’s Chef Gregory Moro, “Champagne Lobster” prepared by
Savannah’s Chef Mark Pariano, or “Lobster Bouillabaisse” prepared by Brasserie Pascal’s Chef
Isidro Zuniga. Voters then enter their passport to win a voter prize – a two night’s stay at The
Retreat in Laguna Beach plus dinner for two at one of the three participating restaurants.

CHALLENGE RULES
To participate in the Lobster Challenge guests pick up a “Passport to Maine” at one of the three
participating restaurants and receive a stamp for each Challenge dish sampled. Participants
must acquire two stamps for eligibility to vote for their favorite. If participants choose to go to
the final restaurant, they will receive a complimentary wine pairing with their third Challenge
dinner, and a second entry into the voter prize drawing.
