Bistro 523

Bistro 523 had a grand opening this weekend and served eleven "customers", in two seating. On Friday, I hosted the MOW Book Club for a discussion of "Suite Francaise" by Irène Némirovsky and a dinner of pasta with an eggplant and tomato sauce. On Sunday, the chalkboard with the Menu du Jour was placed outside the door when my niece, Cherie and her husband Mike, my nephew Biff and his partner, Butch joined Frank and me for a bistro dinner. The meal included the house specialty (or soon to become a specialty) of Bistro 523 Short Ribs, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans with Pancetta. Biff provided a wonderful Salmon en Croûte appetizer, and Cherie provided a tasty lemon and gingerbread trifle. Everything was yummy.
