We had heard of but not visited until last evening. What a wonderful surprise! I was even reluctant to tell the truth here for fear the bistro will be booked every nite to capacity. But...
Just what I expect from a good restaurant, a limited menu. So they can assure excellence in all they prepare. And here they do it! Excellence in every item.
Before talking about the food..the service. So attentive WITHOUT being intrusive. Friendly and efficient. Knowing that when pouring white wine you do not fill the glass so the the wine can get warm, just 2-3 inches is sufficient and be there when it needs refilling without interrupting the conversation or eating. That is exactly what was done.
The food. The pomme frites with hint of black truffle was shared by the three of us as we ate our salads. These frites were to write home about. Crispy, hot and so tasty. Our salads were were scrumptious. Two of us had the tomatoe, romaine and bacon with Bleu cheese. Another the apple,arugula. Three very happy folks waiting for the next course.
Every appetizer sounded so good we passed up entres and went for: fried oysters, lobster roll, and crab cakes. Each was a treat. The oysters were cooked to perfection, meaning the outside was crispy and the oyster within was melt in your mouth literally! Crab cakes a wonder and the lobster roll sliders were as good as or better than ones from Maine. The lobster was flavored but not overdone so the taste of lobster was there enhanced by the herbs and other ingredients.
Dessert, only one of had the courage to eat more, that was me the only guy there. The blueberry cobbler was to die for. Too many times the fruit is over sweetened here perfect. And the cover not traditional looking cobble but fabulous and topped with vanilla ice cream. All of us delved in and were in dessert heaven.
The wine list is short, but our choices made us happy.
When I listed the cost per person below that was ours perhaps you don't drink or eat as much as we did. Then it wouldn't be as high. An appetizer and entre could run hi 20's to mid 30's without wine.
Overall a wonderful experience, we can't wait to go back.
