good eats at b bistroSeptember 29, 2008 at 3:36 pm | Posted in Dinner, Travels | 2 Comments
So Friday night was a bittersweet one…my bestest girl Becca was supposed to venture down to Bawlmer from New Haven, but car drama and other annoying rain situations made it fall through. We had dinner reservations at b bistro in bolton hill so instead of Becca, ECM was my date! Dinner turned out to be splendid even with the monsoon!
The atmosphere at b is so wonderful! There is hustle and bustle like a true bistro, but there is a relaxing component to it. Perfect for a nice romantic evening!
Check out the rest of our food choices below.
I got the duck in pomegranate sauce with a deconstructed blue cheese and fruit (yay strawberries!) salad. I loved the duck! The sauce kind of reminded me of maple syrup…but I love sweet things so it suited my palate just great! I’m not usually so keen on deconstructed meals, but the presentation was so lovely I was fine to “construct” my eats as I went along.
We chose the appetizer from the specials- figs with prosciutto and microgreens. From my experience with prosciutto from Venice it can be very salty, but this was perfectly tasty! And a nice bite with the greens and piece of fig! Perfect! As you can see from the picture I was so eager to attack this dish, the picture taking came mid eat!
ECM got the leg of lamb steak topped with cremini mushrooms and a madeira wine sauce. It was ALOT of meat, and he enjoyed it thoroughly! Although I think he liked my duck better… :-D ECM paired his meal with a troegenator beer and I got a glass of chateau!
