We finished our hike at Staunton River State Park later than planned. We didn't want to wait until we got home to eat dinner, but we certainly didn't want to eat at any of the fast food places we passed on our way to the park! So I fired up the Trip Advisor app on my phone and at the top of the list was Bistro 1888 in South Boston. The menu look good, so we took a chance on getting in without a reservation on Saturday night.
We got a table at the bar and had an amazing dinner. After a salad and beer, we had the portobello filet and he chicken angel hair. The spicing was good, the flavors were interesting and well matched. The service was quite good. And we topped it all off with the chocolate decadence dessert. All for just under $50 before tip (we did split one beer, salad, and dessert). Great food at a very reasonable price. We're definitely going back, but we'll know to make a reservation next time.
Thanks Trip Advisor for pointing us to a restaurant we never would have found or even thought to look for!
