Bistro 33 - Dan's 2 Cents

Dan is of course my steady dining companion (and fiancee). He was part of our double date on Saturday night at Bistro 33. Feeling so strongly about this place, he wanted to add his 2 cents below. If his commentary doesn't convince you to visit Bistro, I don't know what will. Enjoy!

Bravo to the people at Bistro 33!

Let me first say that I am not exactly the most patient of men, especially when I am hungry. As Foodista explained, we waited for a table for 4 people for about an hour. Usually this would drive me up the proverbial "friggin' wall". And indeed it was beginning to. We had our drinks to keep us busy of course, but nonetheless, I was starving. Then, out of nowhere came the crawfish tempura. It was delicious and effective because my thoughts of going elsewhere (I suggested Fatty's at least once) evaporated. When we finally did sit down, the meal that followed was absolutely phenomenal. My lamb kicked ass, and the soup we had for an appetizer kicked ass, and together they formed an unstoppable combination of ass-kickery the likes of which I am unaccustomed to eating. Needless to say, I was satisfied, and the quality of the food balanced out the lengthy wait for a table. And then the bill came and we saw that they had not charged us for the drinks we had had earlier. What a move! With that gesture (coupled with the stellar fare) they basically made me a repeat customer. I will be going back, and more than once more I'm sure.

I should also say that the restaurant is much more capable of accommodating a party of 2, as opposed to a party of four. If it had been just Foodista and me, we would have sat right down. So I would have to say that I recommend it highly for a date or something. But know that if you do go with more people, you will probably be taken care of if the wait gets out of hand.
