Ventura Boulevard continues to heat up with the opening of a swanky new French bistro. Montresor takes over the former Gadarene Swine and has redone the space to look like your Moulin Rouge-fantasy of Paris. The opening menu runs deep with wine and aperitifs, as well as classic bistro fare like French Onion soup, creme brulee and short ribs.
