My wife and I decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary last year (the dates on TA don't go back to July 2012) at Bay St. Bistro. Best decision we ever made. From now on, BSB is our romantic rendevous restaurant. It's a small place but it feels really cozy with classic jazz playing over the sound system. During the winter when it gets dark early the place must have oodles of atmosphere.
We were lucky enough to have Matt as our waiter. We brought our own favorite bottle of wine and he uncorked it for a minimal corkage fee.
My wife started off her meal with the baby spinach salad and I had the red white and blue salad with blueberries, cherrie, and goat cheese. Both were delicious. My wife had stuffed chicken breast and I had wild blue marlin with puttanesca sauce. We shared oven roasted vegies and great housemade bread. I've never had marlin before but I hope to have it again after that meal. My wife loved her chicken--but the gravy! Strange as it may seem, my wife preferred my puttanesca sauce and I preferred her chicken gravy. But since I love fish more than chicken and she feels vice versa, we kept our entrees while stealing each other's sauce and gravy.
For dessert, Matt suggested dessert wines to accompany the items we chose. My wife had a Hungarian Tokaji and I had a Spanish Oloroso Sherry. Both were exquisite. My wife had the best caramel cheesecake on the planet, and I had the the chocolate truffle cake, both made my Matt's company Carter's Chocolates. The man is an even better chocolatier than he is a waiter, which is saying a huge amount. After dinner chocolate mints, made by Matt, were the best I've ever had.
During our meal, the owner John came out and we talked about his wonderful food and about wines and about the great service Matt gave us. It was a real special night for us and a great way to celebrate our anniversary.
As I wrote, Bay St. Bistro will now be "our" place for all special occasions or when we just want to treat ourselves to a special dining experience.
