Bistro 33 Has a New Tapas-Style Menu

One of my favorite neighborhood eateries, Bistro 33 has changed the format of their menu. Instead of the traditional three-course set-up, they're now serving their dishes tapas-style where everyone can taste and share a bit of everything. Personally I'm happy about this, as I love sharing my food. There's always so much on the Bistro menu that I want to try but haven't been able to in one shot. Until now...

Below is their new menu, which does not include sushi, as this part of the offering hasn't changed much.

Enjoy and check it out for yourself--the prices remain moderate and I'm assuming that the superb quality of the food hasn't changed.
