I asked my UM student....where do you want to eat today. I was shocked to hear I'm craving the Bistro at Nordstrom. There is something for everyone here, and it doesn't hurt that it's in a beautiful mall, in a great store. I've been there three times now, and each time it was relish, consistent quality and service. I'd recommend going at slightly off lunch hour times, and you stand in line to place your order before being seated and served by wait staff, but the line moves quickly.
Bread pudding is great. Rosemary fries, too.
