Alain's Bistro Restaurant Review

: Finding Alain’s Bistro on a quiet street in Alsace, France, would be more likely, but thankfully for Nyack residents, this culinary oasis of French Alsatian cooking can be found right inside a local mall. A small, comfortable bar with a few tables at the anterior of the restaurant leads into a charming and elegant main dining area with provincial accents. Appetizers are meticulously and creatively rendered; a specialite de l'Isle de Beaute with cured Corsican wild boar, celery rémoulade and red pepper coulis applies a delicate treatment to a hearty base ingredient. Pissaladière, an onion tart with olives Niçoises and anchovies, is filled with pungent flavors --- you won’t want to share it. Meanwhile, entrées like roasted rabbit with mixed vegetables and a crispy sweetbread casserole with fricasséed vegetables in a mushroom sauce are fine examples of traditional French Alsatian cuisine. A French regional wine list with thoughtfully chosen bottles representing varietals from Cabernet Sauvignon to Cabernet Franc, along with delicate, artistically presented desserts, help round out the comprehensive bistro experience.
