Since summer is officially here, it's nice to think about some delicious, light summery food, and a few restaurants are starting to reflect that in their menus. One in particular I want to highlight here is Bistro 33, that's always diligent about keeping up with the seasons. Browsing through their new summer menu got me excited - take a look:
Escargot - Honshimeji, Maitake ragu, cheesy grits, scallion pesto crispy parsnip
Salmon Crudo - Poached in duck fat, soft boiled duck egg, sauteed greens, potato pancake, orange supremes, bacon BBQ
Half Pheasant - Fennel, kimchi, Peruvian potato salad, hoisin sauce, cognac mustard
Tuna Foie Gras - Asian pear chutney, spicy cashews sour cherries, Thai basil salad, orange blossom honey
These are just a few things, but you can peruse their entire menu online. Looking through it, I noticed the Lobster Roll that also got me pretty stoked. Enjoy!
