The Bikini Lifestyles Show on Talk Radio 790 KABC airs Saturday nights at 7pm Pacific Time. In this episode, host Susan Irby and co-host, Denice Fladeboe celebrate dineL.A. Restaurant Week as it continues through July 27. Over 360 of Los Angeles’ best restaurants are participating in dineL.A. Restaurant week where diners can enjoy LA’s diverse cuisines at a price that fits their budget. Participating restaurants are offering 3-course prix-fixe meals for lunch and dinner.

For our Recipe of the Week, Chef Pascal Olhats shared his incredibly delicious Tomato Tarte and Wild Salmon Salad with Caper Shallot Vinaigrette from his newly opened cafe in San Juan Capistrano – just down the street from my house! Cafe Pascal is my new home away from home. Serving delectable French pastries, Pascal brewed coffee, espresso, delicious savory tarts, salads, and panini, and desserts to live for! Open from 7am to 7pm, Cafe Pascal is also happy to custom make an omelet for you or as I do, order eggs any way you like them and they are served with fresh fruits of melon, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries… beautiful, delicious and of course, #SOBikini. Cafe Pascal is just off Ortega Highway on Rancho Viejo Road in San Juan Capistrano. Oh, and don’t forget the wine… Pascal has designed a cool, new wine bar with wine lovers in mind. Order wine by the glass or bottle or pre-purchase a card and buy wine from the uber-cool wine bar anytime you like! Come on down and try Cafe Pascal, you will probably see me in the front corner in my workout clothes with my computer sipping coffee or wine as they offer free wi-fi. What’s not to love?!
