The Los Angeles Times once announced C'est Si Bon as one of the country's best restaurants. However, this review is by no means a fluke. C'est Si Bon is the only starred french restuarant in Washington state outside of Seattle.
The heart and soul of the kitchen is Michéle, who is so familiar with food she seems to work magic right before your eyes if you're lucky enough to witness her perform. Michéle has been making gastronomical delights most all of her life, starting out as a private chef for Hollywood stars before moving to the Northwest and founding C'est Si Bon with Norbert.
Michéle's domain is the kitchen, and her husband Norbert is a master maitre d'. He chats with the customers, getting a feeling for what they like to eat and drink, and takes great pride in taking each table's order personally. He personifies the fabled Frenchman who loves company, food, and music, whilst wanting to be the center of it all! Norbert was a professional violinist for many years, working in Hollywood as a studio musician. During this time period he also helped Michelle to run a catering business for many of the Hollywood elite.
Over the years, Michéle has perfected her ideas and concepts of French food. Most food cooked in France is created with only fresh ingredients, or whatever is available during that season. The French discourage using frozen or canned food if possible as to always achieve the greatest gastronomical experience. Michéle is not a chef in the sterotypical style of ''Haut'' French cuisine, her style is No-Nonsense (''nouveau''), cooking simply and wonderfully.
