This creamy, savory classic was a favorite at the former Downtown Andre's restaurant.

Chef Andre Rochat is arguably the Valley’s original celebrity chef. And while his original eponymous outpost is no longer with us, he still serves his classic French cuisine at both Monte Carlo (Andre’s) and the Palms (Alizé). Rochat’s simple presentation of chicken cream mushroom was always available at his Downtown location, and though it’s not on either of his current menus, you might find it off-menu if you ask nicely. Or you could try making it at home.
