This was my first visit and won't be my last.
I don't usually order fried food - too greasy - but the fish (perch) was small thin fillets with the perfect light dusting of cornmeal to give the fish some texture. Crisp, hot and fried in front of your eyes. They know how to fry; the fish wasn't greasy at all! Didn't even need any tarter sauce (I don't think there was any).
I ordered the combo plate - four fillets, baked beans, cole slaw and two slices of white bread. $6.50. Amazing. The beans were thick and rich, with a dark deep color, and a molasses base with bits of bacon. The cole slaw was slightly sweet, vinegar based that I don't usually like but I this time I did.
A co-worker ordered the brisket. A generous portion of smokey meat with a sweet dark barbeque sauce. Not sure which to order? Go with a friend and split the meat portion - there's plenty.
The Bistro is at the Bethlehem Center, an agency dedicated to transforming lives and communities through its programs. And through their great, simple but good food.
