Bistro du Midi Restaurant & Bar Review

Bistro du Midi
My Opinions: This was my first dinner here in 2011, and it was a great start to the year ... and much needed.  After just surviving the blizzard, I came down with a cold and got my car towed, so before I went to hand over a bulk of money, brave the 0-degree weather, and dig my car out of ice and snow, I decided that I (and my faithful friend) needed some sustenance, so I got a table at Bistro du Midi.

Thankfully, they had my favorite squash barbajans back on the menu and handed me the always-obliging wine list to raise my spirits. The food was great, the service was just as fantastic, and I had a wonderful time.  I do wish they would create better specials; nevertheless, I am looking forward to coming here again soon.

P.S. what happened to the free nougat at the end of the meal? What - the rice paper wasn't a hit? (called it!)
