Ardeo+Bardeo Restaurant Review: By joining forces, Ardeo and Bardeo have become one very large, very loud dining room-bar that acts like a magnet for the twenty- and thirtysomethings in the neighborhood. Such has been the impact of this fusion that finding seating is a challenge, whether you are a bar hopper or a hungry patron. But if you hang onto your hat, you can sit down to a fine meal that is a departure from Ardeo’s traditional menu. Offering everything from snacks to cheese selections to hearty pizzas and pastas, the menu beckons patrons to indulge. With choices like Roman-style gnocchi, pan-roasted whole trout and grilled pork porterhouse, you’ll be hard-pressed to not overeat. While the menu offers some real dietary challenges, you won’t want to skip dessert, such as the chocolate peanut torte. Want to drink much, eat minimally? You can get a fine selection of wines, cocktails and vodkas and brandies that you can pair with several small-plate options. That’s eating your cake and having it too.
