Manhattan Beach's Cafe Pierre has been a local favorite for over thirty years, and they've welcomed Chef Remi Lauvand to the team, who is currently responsible for the restaurant's thoughtful French Bistro fare. Within a menu of options that include cheese and charcuterie plates, modern takes on classic entrees, and sumptuous desserts is a series of jarred meats that proved most noteworthy during a recent hosted dinner. Served in wide-mouthed, latch-sealed glass jars, the dishes each showcase a rich and meaty star component, often making use of centuries-old techniques to cook using the whole animal, which means offal offerings, like the Pigs Trotters ($8) or the Head Cheese ($8).
